The Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian on Friday condemned Azerbaijan’s “aggression” in the Tavush region and accused Turkey – which Baku supports – of “fueling tensions in the South Caucasus”.
Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, Pashinian said the Azerbaijani army “launched a military offensive in the Tavush border region” in July and accused Baku of “continuing to attack the civilian population” that Yerevan agreed to the hostilities hours after to end their outbreak “.
“The Azerbaijani authorities have increased their war threats, which have exceeded all imaginary limits in a civilized world. The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has even threatened to fire a missile at a nuclear power plant in Armenia, which poses a threat of nuclear terrorism,” hinted at.
He also claimed that these confrontations “ended the myth of Azerbaijan’s military superiority and confirmed that there is apparently no military solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict”. “The Azerbaijani leadership had long recognized this fact and renounced the use of force and threats of violence to resolve the conflict,” he added.
