Italy and Azerbaijan signed an agreement on cooperation within the energy infrastructure of Karabakh, Trend reports.

The Italians will contribute to the creation of energy infrastructure in the liberated territories.

In order to create an electric power infrastructure in the territories liberated from Armenian occupation by the Azerbaijani army under the leadership of the Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev, an agreement was signed on mutual cooperation in the format of a video conference.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was introduced on Nov. 10, 2020.

Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of the Azerbaijani army on the front line, using large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery on Sept. 27. Azerbaijan responded with a counter-offensive along the entire front.

Back in July 2020, the Armenian Armed Forces violated the ceasefire in the direction of Azerbaijan's Tovuz district. As a result of Azerbaijan's retaliation, the opposing forces were silenced. The fighting continued the following days as well. Azerbaijan lost a number of military personnel members, who died fighting off the attacks of the Armenian Armed Forces.

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, the 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.

It is difficult to convey the feeling when one sees how the civilization, created by the Azerbaijani people over the centuries, died here as result of Armenian occupation, Secretary General of TURKSOY Dusen Kaseinov, who is in Azerbaijan’s Aghdam city as part of the delegation of TURKSOY and the Turkic Council, told Trend on Jan. 17.

“Passing by the fertile lands, I thought that just as after a drought these fertile lands await rain, so this land awaits its poems, its architectural structures that have been created here for centuries,” Kaseinov added. “Having united, we, all Turkic peoples, will give these lands a new life, we will revive these lands spiritually and culturally on an economic and financial basis. We must all do this together."
