Military regime of Nagorno-Karabakh considers illegal activities as a source of profit
Azerbaijan, Baku, 12 June / Trend M. Aliyev /
The military regime of Nagorno-Karabakh is considering illicit activities as a source of profit, MP, member of the parliamentary committee on security and defense Zahid Oruj told Trend.
For many years Azerbaijan has been informing international institutions of illegal actions undertaken by Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh and expressing its official position. The operations carried out recently prove the correctness of Azerbaijan, he said.
Recall that operational measures carried out recently by the Ministry of National Security revealed 12 people involved in smuggling of drugs from Iran, and some 40.5 kilograms of narcotic substances have been found and seized from them. It was found that cultivation, growing and harvesting of these drugs withdrawn from illegal trafficking were organized on the Armenian-occupied territories, from where these drugs were transited to Iran, and then to Azerbaijan.
International organizations take a hard line against drug trafficking, but, unfortunately, do not consider Nagorno-Karabakh in this sense, the deputy said.
"We have a very real reason to file a lawsuit against Armenia and the military regime of Nagorno-Karabakh. After systematizing illegal activities of the Armenians, we should submit materials to international legal institutions. How is it possible that sanctions are imposed in connection with illicit drug trafficking and operations from Iran, Afghanistan and other countries, whereas Karabakh seems to be taken care of by someone?" Oruj said.
The Armenian side uses this activity as a real weapon against Azerbaijan, the deputy. said
