On July 12, the armed forces of Armenia attempted to attack, using artillery, in order to seize positions in the direction of Tovuz district along the state border between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

The attack of the enemy forces was prevented by retaliatory measures. As a result of the combat, three servicemen of the Azerbaijani army were killed and four were injured.

This provocative act of the Armenian armed forces should be seen as a continuation of the recent actions and statements of the leadership of aggressor state Armenia, which serve to increase tensions in the region.

Armenia, which has reflected its aggressive policy in the country's national security strategy, openly demonstrates that it aims to seize new positions and increase tensions in the region instead of eliminating the consequences of the conflict and withdrawing its occupying forces from the internationally recognized territories of Azerbaijan.

This provocation by Armenia casts serious doubt on the essence of the negotiations mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs on the settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Armenia is trying to involve third countries in the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict with such provocative actions. Nevertheless, the position of the international community on Armenia's aggressive policy is quite well known.

All provocations of the enemy forces will be adequately prevented from this time onward as well.

Armenia bears full responsibility for such provocative actions that serve to aggravate the situation.

God bless the souls of our Martyrs.

Заявление Министерства иностранных дел Азербайджанской Республики

12 июля этого года вооруженные силы Армении в целях захвата позиций на армяно-азербайджанской государственной границе в Товузском направлении предприняли попытку атаки c использованием артиллерийского огня. Атака вражеских сил была предотвращена ответным огнем. В ходе боев погибли трое военнослужащих азербайджанской армии, четверо ранены.

Данную провокацию вооруженных сил Армении следует рассматривать в качестве продолжения заявлений и действий, осуществляемых за последнее время руководством страны-агрессора Армении, направленных на эскалацию напряжённости в регионе.

Республика Армения, отразив элементы своей агрессорской политики в национальной стратегии безопасности страны, вместо устранения последствий конфликта и вывода оккупационных сил с международно-признанных территорий Азербайджана, отчётливо демонстрирует стремление к захвату новых территорий и росту напряжённости.

Провокация вооруженных сил Армении ставит под серьезное сомнение значимость проводимых при посредничестве сопредседателей Минской группы ОБСЕ переговоров по урегулированию армяно-азербайджанского нагорно-карабахского конфликта. Данными действиями Армения стремится вовлечь в конфликт третьи страны. Однако позиция мирового сообщества относительно агрессорской политики Армении общеизвестна.

Все провокации вражеских сил будут и впредь достойно пресекаться. Вся ответственность за подобные провокационные действия, служащие эскалации напряжённости, лежит на Армении.    

Пусть покоятся с миром души наших шехидов.
