STEPANAKERT (ArmRadio)—Azerbaijan has accused the Karabakh Defense Army of shelling its civilian population.
“With such statements Azerbaijan has once again demonstrated that its cynicism and zeal to justify the failed military aggression unleashed against the Karabakh and numerous war crimes being committed by the Azerbaijani army know no bounds,” Artsakh’s Foreign Minister’s Spokesperson Ani Sargsyan said in comments to Panorama.am.
Sargsyan continued by saying that “The Defense Ministry has released undeniable proofs that Azerbaijan deploys its military objects in the settlements along the frontline in violation of the norms of the international humanitarian law, thus turning the populated areas into firing positions, which threatens the peaceful population of Nagorno-Karabakh, demonstrates the utter falsehood of the claims and the criminal nature of the tactics of the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan.”
“We have already stated that in order to guarantee the security of Karabakh and its people, as well as to promote peace and stability in the region, authorities will take diplomatic and other measures to ensure the full implementation of the ceasefire agreements of 1994 and 1995, and to exclude the possibility of developments along the criminal scenario planned by the Azerbaijani authorities,” she added.
