Head of the Press Service Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan Leyla Abdullayeva responds to the media's request to comment on the statements of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan at the meeting of the Security Council of Armenia.
Answer: First of all, we would like to note that in response to the recent provocations by Armenia, Azerbaijan is taking appropriate measures. Thus, last week, Azerbaijan took appropriate measures in response to the concentration, on November 9, of about 60 military personnel of the Armenian armed forces on the road leading to the positions of the Azerbaijani Army in the direction of Garagol in the Lachin region, to the shelling of the positions of the Azerbaijani Army by the Armenian armed forces in the Kelbajar region on November 13, as well as to the preparation of the Armenian armed forces, on November 14, for another provocation in the direction of the Lachin region on the border between the two states.
We emphasize that Azerbaijani servicemen fulfill their duties in the sovereign territories of our country.
We also remind that the main responsibility for the current tension lies directly with the military-political leadership of Armenia.
