The retaliatory actions undertaken by the Azerbaijan Army to suppress the provocation, started at night on July 28 by the Armenian armed forces in the direction of the Kalbajar region, are being continued, the Ministry of Defence told APA.

The Azerbaijan Army Units took relevant steps to neutralize the firing points of the opposing side.

The news about the alleged damaging of civilian facilities in the territory of Armenia is false and misinformation. The military-political leadership of Armenia, following its traditions, continues to spread false information to confuse the Armenian public and the international community.

We call on the military-political leadership of Armenia to refrain from provocations and deliberate aggravation of the situation on the state border of the two countries and to start negotiations on the delimitation of the state border in a civil manner.

We reaffirm that Armenia’s military-political leadership bears full responsibility for the aggravation of the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border.
Currently, the Azerbaijan Army Units control the operational situation in this direction.

To ensure the inviolability of the borders of the Republic of Azerbaijan, all provocations committed by Armenia will continue to be resolutely prevented.
