Armenia disrespects peace, coexistence in region – Azerbaijani ombudsman
Armenia demonstrates disrespect for the conditions of peace and coexistence in the region, Commissioner for Human Rights (Ombudsman) of Azerbaijan Sabina Aliyeva said in her statement made in connection with the tension on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border.
She noted that the Armenian side demonstrates disrespect for the conditions of peace and coexistence in the region.
"Azerbaijani servicemen were killed and injured as a result of shelling by the Armenian Armed Forces. We are greatly concerned about injuries of Azerbaijani servicemen and the attempts of the Armenian Armed Forces continuing since last night to aggravate the situation on the state border in the direction of Kalbajar district,” Aliyeva said.
The ombudsman stressed that the disregard by the Armenian side of the ceasefire regime on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border and the use of large-caliber weapons once again prove that this country not only neglects the peacekeeping process but also greatly impedes it.
“The threats to Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity within the internationally recognized borders are unacceptable,” she said. “The Armenian side demonstrates disrespect for the conditions of peace and coexistence in the region.”
“Once again we call on the Armenian side to make efforts to ensure peaceful coexistence, protect the life and health of people,” Aliyeva added.
