The Ministry of Defense of Armenia told Armenian News-NEWS.am that the Azerbaijani troops remain within the state border of Armenia (in the sectors of Syunik and Gegharkunik Provinces).
According to the ministry’s news department, the Armenian side has expressed its position on the negotiations, claiming that “the territories are our territories, and we’re not preparing to retreat one meter from them, they must leave”.
The Armenian and Azerbaijani sides negotiated yesterday. During yesterday’s session of the Security Council of Armenia, acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan declared that Armenia will petition to the Collective Security Treaty Organization in regard to the incidents in Syunik and Gegharkunik Provinces.
