Statements of the representatives of the illegal regime established in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan meaningless and baseless, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry told local media on May 8.
"The representatives of the occupation regime, uninformed of the current situation, do not know what to say", - said Defense Ministry.
Previously, the representatives of the occupation regime said "if necessary, the strategic and military installations and airfields on the territory of Azerbaijan will be struck".
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
