Azerbaijan has submitted its proposals to the UN Secretary General's Report "Confidence-building measures in the regional and subregional context", presented as part of the 68th session of the UN General Assembly.
The Foreign Ministry reported that Azerbaijan's proposals were included in the report.
The proposals identify main problems that hinder the building of trust in the South Caucasus.
These problems particularly cover such issues as Armenia's aggressive policy against Azerbaijan, gross violation of the norms and principles of international law by Armenia, occupation of Azerbaijani lands, policy of ethnic cleansing, non-compliance with weapons monitoring and other issues.
Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. Armenia constantly violates a ceasefire agreement signed with Azerbaijan in 1994 and refuses to implement the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
