On September 13, the head of the International Military Cooperation Department of the Ministry of Defense, Major General Huseyn Mahmudov, gave a briefing for foreign military attachés accredited in the Republic of Azerbaijan.

According to the information given to APA by the Ministry of Defense, the military representatives of foreign countries were given detailed information about the large-scale provocations committed by the Armenian armed forces in the directions of Dashkasan, Kalbajar and Lachin.

It was stated that the main purpose of the Armenian side's regular shelling of our positions in the recently mentioned directions is to delay the signing of the peace agreement, as well as the large-scale reconstruction and reconstruction works carried out in the liberated territories.

It was brought to the attention of international representatives that Azerbaijan is committed to the tripartite statement dated November 10, 2020, and is interested in establishing peace in the region by starting the work of demarcation and delimitation of the borders and signing a peace treaty between the two countries.

On the other hand, the other party, on the other hand, is exhibiting behavior contrary to the statement by planting mines in our territories and on the supply roads of our units.

This is a clear proof that Armenia is in a position of military adventure and revanchism.

Despite the fact that our engineer-fortification units discovered and destroyed a total of 7,559 anti-personnel, 2,348 anti-tank mines and 1,052 unexploded ammunition buried by the Armenian armed forces in the liberated areas, the sabotage teams of the other side destroyed the security roads of our units on the night of September 12. and mined the areas between the positions.

It was this act and large-scale provocation of Armenia that led to a battle in the directions of Dashkasan, Kalbajar and Lachin.

In the briefing, it was specially emphasized that the retaliatory measures taken by us are aimed at ensuring the safety of our units and at the same time civilians involved in reconstruction work in the liberated areas.

It was once again declared that the military and political leadership of Armenia bears all responsibility for the tension, conflict and losses caused by the large-scale provocation.
