Relatively calm situation observed in Karabakh following 'Revenge' operation

Relatively calm situation is observed in Karabakh and on the state border, the statement of Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense said.

After the 'Revenge' operation was carried out by the Azerbaijani army, relative calm remains on the territory of Azerbaijan, where the Russian peacekeeping contingent is temporarily deployed, including on the state border.

"The operational situation is under the full control of Azerbaijani army units," the Defense Ministry said.

The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry earlier said that Azerbaijan strongly rejects the statement of the Armenian Foreign Ministry on August 3, which unfairly accuses the Azerbaijani side.

The fact, that the Armenian Foreign Ministry accuses Azerbaijan of violating the trilateral declaration is nothing but hypocrisy, the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan notes.

"The Azerbaijani side has repeatedly emphasized that the provisions of the statement signed by the leaders of Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia on November 10, 2020, have not been implemented, especially since the Armenian armed forces have not yet completely withdrawn from the territory of Azerbaijan. The article 4 of the trilateral declaration said that the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation shall be deployed in parallel with the withdrawal of the Armenian Armed Forces," the ministry recalled.

The ministry added that in addition to numerous testimonies from the Azerbaijani side about the presence of illegal Armenian armed forces on the territory of Azerbaijan, this fact was also recognized by Armenian authorities.

The ministry emphasized that the reason of the recent tension is the presence of illegal Armenian armed forces on the territory of Azerbaijan and provocations carried out by them.

"The death of an Azerbaijani soldier on August 3 is also a result of Armenian's failure to implement its obligations under the trilateral statement," the ministry said.

"In order to ensure peace and stability in this region, as well as post-conflict normalization it's important to fully implement the obligations of trilateral statement. Azerbaijan fully implements its obligation and strongly demands that Armenia does the same," the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said.
