The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that contrary to the provisions of the Trilateral Statement signed on 10 November 2020, the continued presence of Armenia’s armed forces formations in the Garabagh region of Azerbaijan is a source of grave threat to regional peace and stability.
Axar.az reports that Anar Eyvazov, the head of the press service of the Ministry of Defense stated this as he gave briefing regarding the initiation of local anti-terrorist measures in the Garabagh region of Azerbaijan.
"Local anti-terrorist activities have been launched to ensure the provisions of the Trilateral Statement, suppress large-scale provocations in the Garabagh economic region, disarm and secure the withdrawal of formations of Armenia’s armed forces from our territories, neutralize their military infrastructure, provide the safety of the civilian population returned to the territories liberated from occupation, the civilians involved in construction and restoration work and military personnel of Azerbaijan Army, and ultimately restore the constitutional order of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
As part of the measures, positions on the front line and in-depth, long-term firing points of the formations of Armenia’s armed forces, as well as combat assets and military facilities are incapacitated using high-precision weapons.
We reiterate that the civilian population and civilian infrastructure facilities are not targeted. Only legitimate military targets are being incapacitated.
The command of the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation and the leadership of the Turkish-Russian Monitoring Center are informed about the ongoing activities,” said Anar Eyvazov.
