15 March 2014 [13:15] - TODAY.AZ
The Armenian Armed Forces fired from the positions located near the Mosesgeh village of the Armenian Berd region on the positions of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces located in the Alibayli village of Tovuz region last night, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said on March 15.

Also, the positions of Azerbaijani Armed Forces have been fired from the positions near the villages of Garakhanbeyli and Ashagi Seyidahmedli of Fizuli region.

The shooting was countered by return fire.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the U.S. are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
