President: Armenia refuses to hand over minefield maps to Azerbaijan


October 15, Fineko/abc.az. President Ilham Aliyev noted that after the end of the war, more than 150 Azerbaijani citizens were killed or seriously injured by mines.

ABC.AZ reports that Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev made this statement when delivering speech at today’s video-format meeting of the CIS Council of Heads of State.

The Azerbaijan leader pointed out that Armenia declines to give us full maps of minefields. The small number of such maps that were transferred to Azerbaijan are accurate by about 25%.

"In the liberated territories almost all buildings and historical monuments have been destroyed during the almost 30-year occupation by Armenia. Of the 67 mosques in the liberated territories, 65 were completely destroyed, and the occupiers kept pigs and cows in the remaining two dilapidated ones, deliberately insulting the feelings of Muslims," the president said.
