“We heard that the Armenian armed forces violated the ceasefire on the front line with Azerbaijan this morning,” Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said in a statement.
“We condemn the Armenian attack, which clearly violates international law and has resulted in civilian casualties,” he said, adding that “with these attacks, Armenia is once again showing that it is the greatest obstacle to peace and stability in the region.” .
Aksoy has also argued that “Azerbaijan will use its right of defense to protect its people and its territorial integrity” and that Ankara will support Baku “as one heart”. “We will be with Azerbaijan whatever it will,” he said.
