Yerevan accuses Baku of invading Armenian territory

Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan

The Armenian Defense Ministry confirmed the fact of an attempt to move Azerbaijani troops towards the border at one of the sections in the Syunik region.

Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called the incident in the Syunik region an encroachment on the territory of Armenia. He made the corresponding statement at a meeting of the country’s Security Council. About this on Wednesday, May 12, writes SputnicArmenia.

“This morning, the Azerbaijani armed forces crossed the state border of Armenia, going 3.5 kilometers deep. In fact, they are trying to surround Lake Sevlich. The actions of the Azerbaijani side in the lake area are unacceptable, this is an encroachment on the sovereign territory of the Republic of Armenia,” the publication quoted him as saying.

According to him, the armed forces of Armenia reacted to the events, necessary tactics and other actions were carried out.

According to the trilateral agreement, a road connecting Baku with the Nakhichevan exclave and Turkey should pass through the Syunik region. The day before, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev warned that he was ready to lay a transport corridor even by force.

Recall that during the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh last fall 2895 Azerbaijani soldiers were killed, 19 are reported missing.

Losses from Armenia amounted to about 3.5 thousand people. From the side of Nagorno-Karabakh, the losses are estimated at almost 2 thousand people.
