The Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh was discussed in a conference in Germany's capital city Berlin.

The Humboldt University in Berlin has hosted the conference titled "Appearance of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in the German press in 1988-2008s", AzerTag news agency reported.

The event was supported by the EuroKaukAsia Society and the Azerbaijan History Department at the Humboldt University within the "Karabakh dialogue" project founded by the latter's initiative.

The attendees have discussed the role of media to cover the "frozen conflicts" in different world countries, objectiveness and stereotypes in this question.

The focus was on the analysis of materials on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict covered in Spiegel, Zeit, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Noie Deutchland (ND) newspapers and following the discussions the conclusions were made.

In the course of exchange of views, the analytical materials were presented by Professor Eva-Maria Auch, Rasim Mirzayev, as well as the History Department's staff members Hasan Ali Yildirim, Nargiz Abdullayeva and others.

The event was also attended by academic circles, politicians, media experts, reporters and students, representatives of Azerbaijani Embassy in Berlin, the Azerbaijani Diaspora, and German public figures.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict emerged in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan.

Since a lengthy war in the early 1990s that displaced over one million Azerbaijanis, Armenian armed forces have occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions.

The UN Security Council's four resolutions on Armenian withdrawal have not been enforced to this day.

Peace talks, mediated by Russia, France and the U.S. through the OSCE Minsk Group, are underway on the basis of a peace outline proposed by the Minsk Group co-chairs and dubbed the Madrid Principles. The negotiations have been largely fruitless so far.
