September 14, Fineko/abc.az. Starting from September 12, 2022, the military provocations launched by the Armenian armed forces against Azerbaijan continue despite the calls of the international community and the ceasefire agreement between the parties.

ABC.AZ reports with reference to the Azerbaijani Foreign Affairs Ministry that the Azerbaijani Army takes retaliatory measures against legitimate military targets.

Committed to international humanitarian law and humanism, the Azerbaijani side has declared its readiness to unilateral hand over the corps of the Armenian soldiers who committed sabotage against the territorial integrity of our country and duly informed the International Committee of the Red Cross of its intention.

In this context, the unwillingness of Armenia to cease its provocative actions and artillery strikes at Azerbaijani positions once again demonstrates Armenia’s motivation to further escalate the situation in the region.

We call on Armenia to refrain from its destructive activities and observe the humanitarian ceasefire. Peace in the region is only possible on the basis of strict adherence to International Law.
