As a result of the Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan, the civilian population was killed, and the civilian infrastructure was damaged. The Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Georgia spreads information about the conflict.

"The armed forces of Armenia have been continuing to target the civilian population, private houses and other civilian infrastructure in residential areas along the line of contact in a gross violation of its obligations under international humanitarian law, including the 1949 Geneva Conventions.

Civilian facilities, such as hospitals, medical centers, school buildings, and kindergartens, have been subjected to indiscriminate shelling of Armenia's armed forces, including from artillery and other large-caliber weaponry. Electricity and energy infrastructure got damaged in residential areas. Armed units of Armenia targeted gas lines in the Borsunlu and Hulabandi villages and several neighborhoods in the Tartar district's administrative center.

On September 29, a mortar attack hit a medical facility in Garadaghli village of Aghdam. As a result, one civilian died. As of September 29, 12 civilians, including two children and two elderly, were killed, with 35 civilians hospitalized. Sixty-six private houses and eight private properties were damaged. Below is photo evidence of the humanitarian law violations of the armed forces of Armenia. Private properties of the residents of Azadgaragoyunlu village of the Tartar district were seriously damaged," reads the statement.

    Approval of the programme on creation of common socio-economic space between the Russian Federation and the occupied Abkhazia region of Georgia represents another illegal step towards de-facto annexation that envisages gradual integration of Georgia’s indivisible regions into Russia’s military, political, economic and social systems.
     
    The so-called “treaty on alliance and strategic partnership” concluded between the Russian Federation and its occupation regime in Sokhumi in November 2014 as well as all subsequent so-called “agreements”, “memoranda” or “programmes” are illegal and cannot have any legal effect. Through such provocative steps and hybrid warfare instruments, the Russian Federation blatantly violates the fundamental norms and principles of international law, undermines the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia, and poses a serious threat to peace and security on the European continent.
     
    We call upon the Russian Federation to cease its destructive actions and illegal steps directed towards de-facto annexation of Georgia’s occupied territories, implement its obligations under the EU-mediated 12 August 2008 Ceasefire Agreement, withdraw its military forces from Georgia’s territory and not to impede creation of international security mechanisms on the ground.

    Today, the US Justice Department indicted 6 GRU military unit # 74455 actors for their roles in several cyber incidents, including those carried out against Georgia. We welcome the efforts of our US partners to bring to justice those responsible for the reckless cyber attacks. 

    Government of Georgia is grateful for the contributions by the United States and our friends and allies to strengthen Georgia’s cyber defense capabilities and resilience. International community’s united stance is vital in condemning and confronting the threats posed by Russia to sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia, its stability, institutions and democratic development.

  • Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia

    Regrettably, the media is still continuing to speculate about the possible military cargo flights through the airspace of Georgia.  

    It is well-known that Georgia has closed its airspace for military flights, on which we have repeatedly stated publicly.  As far as civil and humanitarian flights are concerned, Georgia remains fully in line with its international obligations in this regard. In view of this, we would like to clarify that no special permit is required for such flights and civil flights are carried out based on respective notifications and information. Hence, according to the documents and information available to Georgia, all flights operated in Georgian airspace fully conform to international norms and ICAO standards. 

    To ensure secure air services and prevent the use of civil flights for other purposes, we call on all countries, both shippers and receivers of cargoes, to exercise strict control over the air carriages involving  civil and humanitarian cargoes. It is the primary responsibility of the shipping countries to ensure that civil flights are operated in compliance with the standards and principles of the Chicago Convention, which bans the deliberate use of civil aviation for military purposes. 

    Georgia will strictly react to any violation detected or sufficient evidence thereof, and violators will be held  liable under international law.

    Information of the Press Service of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

    "The military-political leadership of the aggressor Armenia continues to commit acts of terrorism against the civilian population, grossly violating the norms and principles of international law.
    On October 6th, at about 9 pm, although the Baku-Tbilisi-Jeyhan oil pipeline, the largest strategic project in the region, which plays an important role in Europe's energy security, was hit by missiles on the part of the pipeline passing through Yevlakh District, this terrorist attempt was prevented as a result of our Army's decisive measures.


    At the same time, densely populated areas and demilitarized zones, as well as at non-military highly visible and distinguishable objects, including the civilian population are subjected to intensive bombardment by the armed forces of the hostile country from different directions of Terter District. As a result, Mammadov Hasan Asif, born in 1981, a resident of Gaynag village, was killed. Aliyev Dayanat Ganimat, born in 1989, a resident of the same village, and Hasanov Seyfulla Yagub, born in 1968, a resident of Kocharly village, were hospitalized with various injuries.
    Given the present combat conditions all necessary investigative measures are being conducted by the prosecution authorities".

  • Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia on disruption of the 51st round of the Geneva International Discussions scheduled on 6-7 October, 2020

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia expresses its concern over the disruption of the 51st Round of the Geneva International Discussions by representatives of the Russian Federation. It is noteworthy that considering the aggravated security and humanitarian situation in Georgia’s occupied territories, according to the decision by the Co-Chairs of the Geneva International Discussions, the 51st Round was planned and agreed to be held on 6-7 October this year in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Such kind of steps are undermining the entire peace process, and impede the Georgian Government’s and international community’s efforts to solve the problems of the conflict effected population.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia calls upon the Russian Federation to return to the negotiations, and fulfil its international obligations, including the EU-mediated 12 August 2008 Ceasefire Agreement.
     
    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs appeals to the international organisations co-chairing the Geneva International Discussions – the EU, UN and OSCE to take affective measures in order to ensure the resumption of the negotiations within the Geneva format and facilitate achieving tangible progress in the process of peaceful resolution of the Russia-Georgia conflict.
