Baku, Azerbaijan – Azerbaijan on Thursday recalled its ambassador to Greece for consultations amid conflict with ethnic Armenian forces around Nagorno-Karabakh, the Azerbaijan foreign ministry said.

We brought to the attention of the Greek Foreign Ministry information from open sources about the arrival of Armenian citizens from foreign countries, including from Greece, to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan to participate in military operations,” the ministry said in a statement.

Armenia denied the allegations and Greece had recalled its ambassador to Azerbaijan on Wednesday after what it said were “unfounded and offensive” allegations by the Azerbaijan government that Greece tolerated militants on its soil.
