Azerbaijan accused Armenia of escalating the situation on the border

The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry accused the military-political leadership of Armenia of escalating tensions on the border.

The statement of the diplomatic service says that in recent days, the Armenian side has observed a purposeful commission of provocations, including the concentration of 60 military personnel on the road leading to the positions of the Azerbaijani army in the Lachin region and the intensive shelling of the positions of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces in this and Kelbajar regions.

This testifies to the lack of interest of Yerevan in ensuring peace and security in the region, as well as the delimitation of borders, the Azerbaijani ministry said. Baku also stressed that the tension in the region is another military-political provocation of Armenia, TASS reports.

According to the Ministry of Defense of Armenia, 12 Armenian servicemen were captured, there are also casualties and injuries.
