Armenia has no connection with death of Azerbaijani soldier - MOD

11:45, 03.09.2012 Region: Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan Theme: Politics

YEREVAN. – The news, according to which an Azerbaijani military serviceman died, at the line of contact between the Karabakh and Azerbaijani armed forces, as a result of a ceasefire violation by the Armenian side, is inaccurate, Armenian Defense Minister’s Press Secretary Artsrun Hovhannisyan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.    

Also, Hovhannisyan advised the Azerbaijani MOD to independently verify the facts of what happened within its own army and to not look for a guilty party outside.

In his words, the Armenian side did not retaliate to Azerbaijan’s breach of the ceasefire.  

To note, Azerbaijani media had stated that Azerbaijani army soldier Ceyhun Mamedli had been severely wounded in the direction of Aghdam city. He was transferred to hospital, where he died soon thereafter.
