The diversions and provocations of the Azerbaijani side are an unacceptable adventure, especially unacceptable amid a pandemic spreading throughout the world, said deputy PM Tigran Avinyan Monday during parliament's special meeting.

"Official Yerevan completely lays the responsibility for the possible consequences - increasing tension in the region, the death of Azerbaijani troops, and destabilizing the situation - on the political leadership of Azerbaijan," Avinyan noted.

The deputy PM expressed satisfaction with the high professionalism of the Armenian military, who gave a worthy and proportionate rebuff to the opponent's provocative actions. 

"I want to express my support to our soldiers and officers, who once again demonstrated military power and full comprehensive readiness," he noted.
