The people of Afghanistan have always stood by Azerbaijan since the early days of the Nagorno-Karabakh tragedy, Afghan Ambassador to Azerbaijan Mohammad Taqi Khalili said at a press conference on Monday, APAreports. 

He noted that Afghanistan has raised this issue before the UN and other organizations.

“We stand against government terrorism and we condemn all of its manifestations. We always stand by Azerbaijan. In regard to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Muslim countries too will continue to support Azerbaijan,” added the Afghan ambassador.  

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict entered its modern phase when the Armenian SRR made territorial claims against the Azerbaijani SSR in 1988

A fierce war broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. As a result of the war, Armenian armed forces occupied some 20 percent of Azerbaijani territory which includes Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent districts (Lachin, KalbajarAghdamFuzuliJabrayilGubadli and Zangilan), and over a million Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced people.

The military operations finally came to an end when Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in Bishkek in 1994.
