Foreign Ministry’s response to Pashinyan: Azerbaijani military are in their sovereign territories
According to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Turan News, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry reacted to the statement of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan about the alleged “penetration of the Azerbaijani armed forces into the country’s territory in the eastern direction.”
“First of all, we would like to note that in response to the recent provocations by Armenia, Azerbaijan is taking appropriate measures. So, last week, on November 9, about 60 servicemen of the armed forces of Armenia concentrated on the road leading to the positions of the Azerbaijani army in the direction of Lake Garagel, Lachin region. On November 13, the Armenian armed forces fired at the positions of the Azerbaijani army in Kelbajar. On November 14, the Armenian armed formations were concentrated in the direction of the Lachin region on the border of the two countries in order to prepare a new provocation. In all cases, the Azerbaijani military took appropriate retaliatory measures,” said Leyla Abdullayeva, an official representative of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.
She stressed that the Azerbaijani servicemen fulfill their duties in the sovereign territories of the country.
“The main responsibility for the current tension bears directly the military-political leadership of Armenia,” the Azerbaijani diplomat summed up.
