Azerbaijan criticized the statements of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, about the border conflict with Armenia, made by her during her visit to Yerevan, reported Agence France-Presse, quoted by BTA.

Baku described Pelosi's words that Azerbaijan had committed an "illegal" encroachment on Armenian sovereignty as "groundless and unjust" and said they dealt a serious blow to peace efforts with Yerevan.

"The baseless and unfair accusations made by Pelosi against Azerbaijan are unacceptable," the Azerbaijani foreign ministry said.

"Pelosi is known as a pro-Armenian politician," the department emphasized.

Nancy Pelosi condemned "Azerbaijan's illegal attacks on Armenian territory"

"This is a serious blow to efforts to normalize relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan," the ministry said in a statement.

Azerbaijan has stressed that the latest fighting is the result of a "large-scale military provocation" by Armenia - something Yerevan denies.
