In an interview with Armenian News-NEWS.am, Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia, Turkologist Ruben Safrastyan said there is still a risk of Turkey’s sabotage with respect to the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
“Ankara might use Baku in the geopolitical game against Russia, and for this reason, Armenia has to be maximally alert and closely follow the situation on the border with Azerbaijan,” he stated.
On March 6 at around 5:30 a.m. Azerbaijani servicemen made an attempt of sabotage in the direction of one of the military posts on the northeastern border of Armenia. Thanks to the literate actions of Armenian soldiers, the adversary suffered casualties and pushed back to its starting point, leaving ammunition and a mine detector.
The Armenian side didn’t suffer casualties, and one serviceman was slightly wounded.
