The military attaches accredited in Azerbaijan visited the frontline zone on May 11, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry.

Over 20 military attaches from 13 countries took part in the visit organized by Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry jointly with the Foreign Ministry.

The attaches who arrived in the Eskipara village of Azerbaijan’s Terter district reviewed the territory where the white phosphorus artillery shell, fired by the Armenian armed forces, was found, said the Defense Ministry.

It was impossible to transport the shell, therefore, it was eliminated by being exploded by the specialists, added the ministry.

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.
