STEPANAKERT. – There is nothing strange in Azerbaijan’s actions, spokesperson for Karabakh president said commenting on the situation along the line of contact.
The Karabakh defense army said three soldiers were killed Friday as a result of ceasefire violation by Azerbaijani armed forces.
“It is a tragedy for us, we had three soldiers killed and an entire nation mourns, but there is nothing strange in Azerbaijan’s actions. Azerbaijan has always been a terrorist, criminal and treacherous country and once again turned to the terrorist actions typical for terrorists and criminals,” Davit Babayan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
The official Stepanakert believes Azerbaijan’s actions are encouraged by Turkey amid joint military drills held by the two countries these days.
“This can be called a chain of international terrorism,” Babayan added.
The spokesperson for Karabakh president said the incident could have been also perceived as Azerbaijan’s response to a targeted statement by the OSCE Minsk Group. The co-chairs once again have to make a tough and targeted statement, he added.
Three soldiers were fatally wounded after Azerbaijan used grenade launchers to fire the Karabakh positions on Friday.
In the statement made on May 18 the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs said that Azerbaijan “fired a missile across the Line of Contact, striking military equipment”.
