Baku, Azerbaijan, May 8
Statements of representatives of the illegal regime established in Azerbaijan's occupied territories are meaningless and groundless, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry told Trend May 8.
The ministry also said that the occupation regime's representatives, who are uninformed of the current situation, don't know what to say.
It should be noted that earlier, the occupation regime's representatives said that if necessary, they will strike the strategic and military installations and airfields in Azerbaijan's territory.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
