Azerbaijan denies firing at Armenian forces on the border


On Tuesday, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry rejected Armenia’s statement regarding clashes on the border between the two countries.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said in a statement that its Armenian counterpart alleged that Azerbaijani soldiers shot her soldiers.

The statement confirmed that Azerbaijani soldiers issued warnings and prevented 7 trucks carrying Armenian soldiers from approaching the border.


He added, “We categorically confirm that our units did not fire on the other side.”

He stressed that the Armenian soldier who lost his life died as a result of an accident and not by Azerbaijani soldiers’ fire, indicating that Baku is in constant contact with the Russian side in this regard.

On September 27, 2020, the Azerbaijani army launched an operation to liberate its occupied lands in the Karabakh region.

This followed an attack by the Armenian army on civilian populated areas.

After fierce battles that lasted 44 days, Russia announced on November 10, 2020 that Azerbaijan and Armenia had reached a ceasefire agreement, providing for Baku to regain control of its occupied provinces.
