Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 15
Azerbaijani Defense Ministry accused Armenia of spreading disinformation.
“The message of Armenian side about the alleged sabotage of the Azerbaijani army on the contact line of Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, as well as losses, does not correspond to reality, and aimed at deceiving the public and preparing ground for future diversions,” ministry’s press service told Trend Jan. 15.
Azerbaijani Armed Forces fully control the situation on the contact line of troops, said ministry.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
