In Armenia again talking about "Erdogan's soldiers"
The Ministry of Defense of Armenia stated: The Armed Forces of Azerbaijan are trying to build new fortifications on the border, which in the future will increase the risk of an escalation of a new conflict. The press secretary of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia told "Novosti-Armenia" agency about it Shushan Stepanyan...
"The Armenian armed forces are suppressing such actions, at the same time measures are being taken to prevent further aggravation of the situation,"
- noted Stepanyan.
She also denied accusations by the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry that the Armenian military fired at the Azerbaijani village of Alibeyli in order to provoke a new armed conflict. According to her, the Armenian Armed Forces did not open fire, especially against civilians.
According to the press secretary of the Ministry of Defense, such activity of the Azerbaijani side is most likely connected with the joint Armenian-Russian military exercises, which are being held these days.
News of Armenia reports that in the bilateral exercises, which are taking place in Armenia, "more than one and a half thousand servicemen and about 300 units of military equipment, including helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles, are taking part."
The head of the Armenian Foreign Ministry spoke about the activation of the Azerbaijani military yesterday Zohrab Mnatsakanyan at a joint briefing in Cairo with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shukri.
“Azerbaijan and Turkey are conducting active military preparations in the zone of the Karabakh conflict, information is received about their use of terrorist fighters who are being transferred from Syria. We see an increase in military power. These are the steps that undermine efforts to achieve peace and stability in the region, ”
- said Mnatsakanyan, answering the question of the correspondent of the TV channel Sky News Arabia...
Baku responded to this with a statement by the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spread on September 14, which says about the inadmissibility of the settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh by refugees from Lebanon.
“Armenia, using the tragedy in Beirut for its own purposes, has launched a plan to resettle Lebanese Armenians to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan - to Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent regions,”
- the statement says.
At the same time, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry refers to videos published on social networks, in which "The continuation of the policy of illegal settlement of the occupied Azerbaijani territories is being demonstrated"...
The Azerbaijani media are also sounding the alarm, telling about hundreds of Lebanese Armenians who have arrived in Karabakh. Although the press service of the Chief Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs of Armenia Zare Sinanyan only two families are reported to have arrived in Nagorno-Karabakh from Lebanon.
However, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry is confident that Armenia is trying to increase the number of Armenians in the Azerbaijani territories, "Illegally populating these territories with ethnic Armenians who have nothing to do with this region, which will prevent the return home of migrants expelled from Nagorno-Karabakh 30 years ago"...
The fact that the so-called soldiers of Erdogan, terrorist fighters from Syria, arrived (or did not arrive) on the territory of Azerbaijan, were not answered by the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.
