Minister Jeyhun Bayramov informed his interlocutor in detail about the military-political provocations carried out by Armenia in recent years, the threats posed by illegal Armenian armed forces in our territories, the factors and measures that determine the anti-terrorist measures taken by Azerbaijan against the Armenian armed forces and the so-called “regime” on the Azerbaijani territory , as well as the current situation in the region.
He recalled that Azerbaijan does not target Armenian residents, which was confirmed by the UN mission that visited the region, as well as by the International Committee of the Red Cross and even the Prime Minister of Armenia.
It was noted that the ongoing smear campaign against Azerbaijan, allegations of allegedly carried out “ethnic cleansing” against Armenian residents are unfounded, which is part of the political manipulations of Armenia and some countries.
The minister said that Azerbaijan has announced plans for the reintegration of Armenian residents, work is underway in this direction, and applications received from Armenians through the corresponding portal are being considered.
