Yerevan, Armenia – The latest situation in Azerbaijan-Armenia tensions. Pashinyan vomits Turkey’s hatred: Pashinyan clung to the path of the genocide lie again.
As Azerbaijan-Armenia tensions continue, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan made statements to the French press. “The situation is much more serious than the clashes in 2016. Turkey, which denies the past, is once again on the path of genocide,” he said. Armenia’s foreign ministry said it was ready to start talks with the OSCE on a re-ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The tension on the Azerbaijan-Armenia line over Nagorno-Karabakh, which began on Sunday, is in full swing. Statements from the parties also come one after the other.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who claimed that Turkey had sent mercenaries to the region, said that this time the Turkish army was directly leading Azerbaijani forces in Nagorno-Karabakh, accusing them of “once again going down the path of genocide lie”.
“The situation is much more serious than the clashes in 2016, ” Pashinyan told French daily Le Figaro. It may be appropriate to compare this to the situation in 1915, when more than Armenians were massacred. The Turkish state, which denies the past, is once again on the path of genocide,” he said.
Pashinyan, who has re-appealed to the so-called genocide lie, did not provide any evidence of Turkey’s claims that it sent mercenaries to Nagorno-Karabakh.
As the clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia continued throughout the night, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan received statements on the latest situation.
Despite repeated warnings not to fire on settlements, Armenia has come under heavy artillery fire on villages in Agdam, the ministry said. Violent clashes were reported to have continued in several aspects of the front during the morning and evening.
The statement said that the strategically important hills around Madagiz in the Agdere region were captured by the Azerbaijani army, while the Armenian troops in the direction of Jabrayil-Fuzuli broke their resistance and forced them to retreat.
On the other hand, it was announced that 5 armored vehicles and 3 military facilities had been destroyed since the night.
Armenia’s Foreign Ministry announced that they are ready to start talks with the organization for security and cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on a re-ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh.
France, Russia and the United States, co-chairs of the Minsk Group of the OSCE, founded in 1992 to mediate between Armenians in Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh, called yesterday for an immediate ceasefire.
The main reason for the tension between Azerbaijan and Armenia is Nagorno-Karabakh… with the collapse of the Soviet Union, Karabakh became a region of tension between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Tensions have been escalating for more than 20 years, with the Armenians of Karabakh demanding that Karabakh be transferred from Soviet Azerbaijan to Soviet Armenia.
Despite the ceasefire between the sides, frequent clashes continue on the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, which occupies the region. The tension is also being closely watched by the international public because of the gas and oil pipeline corridor in the region.
