Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that the republic received a letter from the RF Ministry of Defense with a response about Iskander-M missiles in Armenia.
He told about this to the TV channel AzTV.
According to him, the Russian military department informed the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry that the missiles were not fired during the conflict in Karabakh.
He specified that he had seen this letter, and that it said that “the Russian side did not establish the launch of ballistic missiles,” and added that this answer did not satisfy Azerbaijan, since the republic wanted to know how exactly Armenia got the Iskander.
Aliyev also denied information that Azerbaijan, together with Turkey, allegedly brought missile debris to Karabakh from Syria.
The head of Azerbaijan stressed that the country is now implementing a joint statement on the complete cessation of hostilities in Karabakh, signed in November. He noted that the republic wants “the peace in the region to be eternal.”
Earlier, Ilham Aliyev demanded that Yerevan explain where the Iskander-M missiles came from the Armenian Armed Forces during the Karabakh conflict, accusing the Armenian side of trying to destroy the city of Shusha. After that, the press secretary of the head of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the topic related to Baku’s information about the discovery of missile debris was being discussed by the military of the two countries.
