Azerbaijan: ‘Terrorists and militias’ among Armenian nationals coming to Nagorno-Karabakh - FM spox.

Azerbaijan, Baku
October 13, 2020 at 17:52 GMT +00:00 · Published

Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry official spokesperson Leyla Abdullayeva said in an interview to RT from Baku on Tuesday, that there are “terrorists and militias” among Armenians coming back to their homeland amid the conflict with Baku.

Abdullayeva referred to the interview of Armenian President Armen Sarkisyan to Al Jazeera in which he mentioned Armenians from all over the world fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh. “We admit the participation of Armenians from different countries in the hostilities,” Sarkisyan said to Al Jazeera earlier this month.

“You see, the Armenian officials openly admit the use of other fighters on their side against Azerbaijan. Who would guarantee that all Armenians who are coming from all over the world, there are no terrorists among them? No one, of course,” said Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesperson.

“Many people have been transferred from the middle eastern area to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan,” she added.

Abdullayeva also called for Russia to take more part in the conflict. “We want to see a more active role of Russia in finding a peaceful solution to the conflict. They are active, but what we also want to see is pressure on Armenia to implement its own obligations and the resolution of the United Nations Security Council,” she highlighted.

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the territory of the Nagorno-Karabakh disputed region broke out on September 27 when sides of the conflict exchanged fire. Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a Russian-brokered ceasefire from midday (local time; 08:00 GMT) on October 10. Later both sides accused each other of violating the agreement and opening fire against civilians.
