Bosnia and Herzegovina supports Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity

Bosnia and Herzegovina supports Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity



Bosnia and Herzegovina has generally supported the standpoints of Azerbaijan on the issue of sovereignty and territorial integrity, Mladen Ivanic, chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, said in an interview with Trend.

He noted that Bosnia and Herzegovina supports the existing activities at multilateral level aimed at resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, as well as the activities of the OSCE Minsk Group.

Ivanic added that House of Representatives and House of Peoples of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina adopted the resolution on respect and support for sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan in January and February 2013, respectively.

He noted that this had great approval and positive reaction in Azerbaijan.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
