A special briefing regarding the situation on the front line took place at the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Georgia.

The embassy's adviser, Eldar Bayramov, said that a large-scale attack on Azerbaijan got carried out by Armenia yesterday morning. The Azerbaijani military fired back.

Eldar Bayramov stressed that as a result of the bombing settlements and civic facilities, Azerbaijani civilians were killed and wounded.

Around 06:00 hours, on 27 September 2020, the armed forces of Armenia blatantly violated the ceasefire regime and launched an intensive attack on villages of Gapanly of Tartar district, Chiragly and Orta Garvand of Aghdam district, Alkhanly and Shukurbayli of Fizuli district and Jojug Marjanli of Jabrayil district of Azerbaijan.

The bombardment of densely populated civilian areas and installations situated along the front line by Armenia's armed forces has been deliberate and targeted. There are reports of dead and wounded among civilians and military servicemen. Extensive damage has been inflicted on many homes and civilian infrastructure.

For instance, as of 27 September, 20:00, according to the preliminary estimations, 19 Azerbaijani civilians have been hospitalized with different wounds. Elbrus Gurbanov and his 4 family members, including two under-aged, were perished, and the house was totally destroyed in the Gashalty village by the city of Naftalan. 

Armenia's deliberate targeting of residential areas and the civilians is a gross violation of the international humanitarian law, including the Geneva Convention of 1949. Targeting the civilian population is a tactic incorporated in the combat training of Armenia's armed forces, and the Khojaly genocide perpetrated in February 1992 has been a vivid testimony to that.

Armenia plans to occupy Azerbaijani lands and does not conceal that. Their military-political leadership tried to threaten Azerbaijan with a new occupation, a new policy of occupation for new territories – this is the policy of Armenia’s military-political leadership today.

Azerbaijan has issued repeated warnings to the international community that Armenia is preparing for a new act of aggression and war. We have repeatedly stated that Armenia's ongoing military aggression against Azerbaijan and the presence of the armed forces of Armenia in Azerbaijan's occupied territories have remained a significant threat to regional peace and security.

With the General Debate at the UN General Assembly's 75th Session underway and the world fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, Armenia's political-military leadership has resorted to another military provocation. By doing so, Armenia's leadership demonstrated once again a flagrant disregard for the international law, UN Charter and the international community.

The armed forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan are undertaking necessary counter-offensive measures to prevent Armenia's another military aggression and ensure the security of the civilian population.

In the course of a successful military operation, units of the Azerbaijani Army have so far liberated the villages of Garakhanbeyli, Garvand, Kand Horadiz, Yukhary Abdurahmanly and Ashagy Abdurahmanly of Fizuli district, as well as Boyuk Marjanli and Nuzgar of Jebrail district of Azerbaijan. In addition, enemy posts in the Aghdara and Murovdag directions were destroyed, and a number of dominant strategic heights were taken under the control of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijani army is currently continuing to fire and strike at the enemy's military positions, as a result of which most of the enemy's military equipment was destroyed.

Azerbaijan exercises its right to self-defense and repulse aggression in full compliance with the UN Charter and international law. And the responsibility for the present situation and future developments lie squarely with Armenia's political-military leadership.

We are following with concern another military escalation between Azerbaijan and Armenia, which, according to reports, has already caused casualties and damage of infrastructure. We are confident that the parties will be able to reach a ceasefire, sit at the negotiating table and avoid largescale military activities that will have a marked negative impact on the security of the entire region.

Georgia calls on the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs and international actors to direct all their efforts towards ending the escalation and ensuring the resumption of a constructive dialogue.

For our part, we reiterate that Georgia remains committed to contribute, in any form, to de-escalation of tensions and restoration of peace in the region.

Tbilisi TV tower has been lit up in the colours of the State Flag of Turkmenistan on the evening of September 26.

Friendly action organized by the municipality of Tbilisi with support of the Embassy of Turkmenistan has become a sign of respect paid by Georgian people to Turkmen nation and remarkable date of its history – the Independence Day, which is observed on September 27.

Вечером 26 сентября Тбилисская телевизионная башня окрасилась в цвета Государственного флага Туркменистана.

Дружественная акция организована мэрией Тбилиси при содействии Посольства Туркменистана и стала проявлением уважения народа Грузии к туркменскому народу и к знаковой дате в его истории – Дню независимости, отмечаемому нашей страной сегодня – 27 сентября.

 

Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Head of Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmat Hajiyev has made a statement as the armed forces of Armenia blatantly violated the ceasefire regime on September 27.

The statement reads: “As it has already been reported by the Ministry of Defense, around 06:00 hours, on 27 September 2020, the armed forces of Armenia blatantly violated the ceasefire regime and using large-caliber weapons, mortar launchers and artillery launched an intensive attack on the positions of the armed forces of Azerbaijan along the frontline, as well as the villages of Gapanli of Tartar district, Chiragli and Orta Garavand of Aghdam district, Alkhanli and Shukurbayli of Fuzuli district and Jojug Marjanli of Jabrayil district.

The bombardment of densely populated civilian areas and installations situated along the front line by Armenia's armed forces has been deliberate and targeted.
There are reports of dead and wounded among civilians and military servicemen. Extensive damage has been inflicted on many homes and civilian infrastructure.
The armed forces of Armenia continue with the bombardment of our positions and residential areas along the frontline.

Armenia's deliberate targeting of residential areas and the civilians is a gross violation of the international humanitarian law, including the Geneva Convention of 1949. Targeting the civilian population is a tactic incorporated in the combat training of Armenia's armed forces, and the Khojaly genocide perpetrated in February 1992 has been a vivid testimony to that.

According to the international law, Armenian armed forces' strikes against the positions of Azerbaijan's army, against the civilians and civilian infrastructure, with the use of large-caliber weapons, are Armenia's yet another military aggression and an act of the use of force against Azerbaijan.

The armed forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan are undertaking necessary counter-offensive measures to prevent Armenia's another military aggression and ensure the security of the civilian population.
Azerbaijan has issued repeated warnings to the international community that Armenia is preparing for a new act of aggression and war.

Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that Armenia's ongoing military aggression against Azerbaijan and the presence of the armed forces of Armenia in Azerbaijan's occupied territories have remained a significant threat to regional peace and security.
With the General Debate at the UN General Assembly's 75th Session underway and the world fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, Armenia's political-military leadership has resorted to another military adventure and a provocation. By doing so, Armenia's leadership demonstrated once again a flagrant disregard for the international law, UN Charter and the international community.

The responsibility for the present situation and future developments lie squarely with Armenia's political-military leadership.”

Помощник Президента Азербайджанской Республики - заведующий отделом по вопросам внешней политики Администрации Президента Хикмет Гаджиев распространил заявление о грубом нарушении режима прекращения огня вооруженными силами Армении 27 сентября в 06:00.

В заявлении говорится:

"Как сообщили в Министерстве обороны, 27 сентября около 06:00 вооруженные силы Армении, грубо нарушив режим прекращения огня, подвергли интенсивному обстрелу позиции азербайджанской армии вдоль линии фронта, село Гапанлы Тертерского района, села Чираглы и Орта Гервенд Агдамского района, сел Алханлы и Шукюрбейли Физулинского района и села Джоджуг Мерджанлы Джебраильского района из крупнокалиберного оружия, минометов и артиллерийских установок различного калибра.

Обстрел гражданских лиц, живущих в густонаселенных прифронтовых зонах, и объектов вооруженными силами Армении был осуществлен преднамеренно и целенаправленно. Имеется информация о гибели и ранении гражданского населения и военнослужащих. Гражданским объектам и домам нанесен серьезный ущерб.

Вооруженные силы Армении продолжают интенсивно обстреливать наши позиции и населенные пункты в прифронтовой зоне.
Преднамеренные нападения Армении на населенные пункты, мирных жителей являются грубым нарушением международного гуманитарного права, в том числе Женевских конвенций 1949 года. Атаки на мирных жителей - тактика, включенная в боевую готовность вооруженных сил Армении, и самым наглядным примером этого является Ходжалинский геноцид, учиненный в феврале 1992 года.

Согласно международному праву, нанесение ударов вооруженными силами Армении по позициям азербайджанской армии, обстрел мирных жителей и объектов из крупнокалиберного оружия являются очередным актом военной агрессии и применения силы Армении против Азербайджана.
Вооруженные силы Азербайджанской Республики принимают необходимые контрнаступительные меры для предотвращения очередной военной агрессии Армении, обеспечения безопасности гражданского населения.
Азербайджан неоднократно предупреждал международное сообщество о том, что Армения готовится к новому акту агрессии и войне.
Азербайджан неоднократно заявлял, что продолжающаяся военная агрессия Армении против Азербайджана, присутствие вооруженных сил Армении на оккупированных территориях Азербайджана являются основной угрозой региональному миру и стабильности.

На фоне общих дебатов 75-й сессии Генеральной ассамблеи ООН, в то время, когда мир ведет борьбу с пандемией COVID-19, военно-политическое руководство Армении прибегло к очередной военной авантюре и провокации. Этими действиями руководство Армении в очередной раз продемонстрировало неуважение к международному праву, Уставу ООН и международному сообществу.

Вся ответственность за сложившуюся ситуацию и дальнейшее развитие событий полностью лежит на военно-политическом руководстве Армении".

В честь празднования 29-й годовщины независимости и 25-летия нейтралитета посольство Туркменистана в Грузии организовало популяризаторскую акцию. На огромных мониторах, установленных на одной из центральных улиц Тбилиси, а также на железнодорожном вокзале и в метрополитене, транслируется видеоряд, повествующий о жизни нашей страны-Туркменистана.

Жители и гости грузинской столицы имеют возможность получить визуальное представление о масштабных достижениях нашей страны, истории и культуре, гостеприимстве и миролюбии туркменского народа, а также о природных жемчужинах и архитектурных памятниках, облике туркменской столицы. Видеоакция продлится до октября.

Deputies of the Mejlis of Turkmenistan discussed the draft Constitutional Law "On Amendments to the Constitution of Turkmenistan" during the 11th meeting of the Mejlis of the sixth convocation held in frames of the Halk Maslahaty meeting.

The participants paid special attention to the establishment of the National Council of Turkmenistan and the forthcoming transition of the country's legislative body to a bicameral system. In this regard, the issues related to the introduction of relevant amendments and additions to the current laws of Turkmenistan were also raised.

The draft Constitutional Law "On Amendments to the Constitution of Turkmenistan" submitted to the next meeting of the Mejlis of the fifth convocation was unanimously approved and adopted.

Chairperson of the Mejlis of Turkmenistan G. Mammedova announced the decision on the draft Constitutional Law.

President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov signed the Constitutional Law "On Amendments to the Constitution of Turkmenistan".

“The adoption of the Constitutional Law of Turkmenistan on the eve of the 29th anniversary of independence, symbolizing the unity of society and the state, is a grandiose historical event that will be inscribed in the chronicle of our people”, underlined the President of Turkmenistan.

The Constitutional Law of Turkmenistan "On Amendments to the Constitution of Turkmenistan" comes into force on January 1, 2021.

In this regard, the work of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan is terminated. The President of Turkmenistan signed the Resolution "On revocation of the 1st order of the Chairperson of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan dated September 25, 2018".

“Adopting the Constitutional Law of Turkmenistan "On Amendments to the Constitution of Turkmenistan", we have created a bicameral structure of the country's legislative body”, said the President of Turkmenistan.

According to the Constitutional Law, the first elections of the members to the chamber of the Halk Maslahaty National Council of Turkmenistan are appointed by the President of Turkmenistan.

In this regard, the President of Turkmenistan signed the Decree of the Halk Maslahaty on the appointment of the first election of members to the chamber of the Halk Maslahaty National Council of Turkmenistan, as well as the organizational work to establish the activities of this structure.

Moreover, the Turkmen leader signed the Decree "On strengthening the social security of healthcare workers".

Speaking at the Halk Maslahaty meeting, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov noted that the parliament is a special branch of state power, an integral instrument for establishing people's democracy in the political, economic and social life of the country. Formation of a qualitatively new bicameral structure of the National Parliament will create favorable conditions for strengthening the legal basis for the development of our independent country and increasing the effectiveness of work of state authorities.

Numerous proposals and comments were received on the draft of the Constitutional

Law. The final draft of the Constitutional Law "On Amendments and Additions to the Constitution of Turkmenistan" was submitted to Halk Maslahaty for consideration.

“In the draft Constitutional Law, proposed for your consideration, the Halk Maslahaty joins the system of the highest state bodies carrying out the tasks of the legislative power. Therefore, it is proposed to remove Article 6 with index 1 from the Basic Law and, in accordance with the creation of a bicameral structure of the legislative representative body of state power, to rename the National Parliament into the National Council of Turkmenistan, and its chambers - the Halk Maslahaty and the Mejlis”, said the President of Turkmenistan.

According to the Turkmen leader, if the draft Constitutional Law is approved and enters into force on January 1, 2021, it would be necessary to hold elections of the members of the National Council of Turkmenistan in the first quarter of 2021.
“We believe that the adoption of the Constitutional Law will be another important step towards the democratization of our country. I am firmly convinced that the National Council of Turkmenistan will turn into a nationwide representative body that unites our people and guides them to high goals!” - emphasized the President of Turkmenistan.

Speaking at a meeting of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov noted that the spread of coronavirus infection had a negative impact on the economies of all states. Nevertheless, despite the difficult financial and economic conditions in the world, Turkmenistan has achieved sustainable development of its economy, and kept significant amounts of financial resources in reserve.

“In the current difficult conditions, we should take all measures to implement the five-year programme of development of the country, which was adopted at 2019 Halk Maslahaty meeting”.

“More than 70 % of the state budget funds are invested into the social sphere. Huge financial resources are used to improve the social and living conditions of the population in villages, settlements, cities in etraps and etrap centers.

“Along with this, it is necessary to increase the volume of credit funds allocated for the development of industrial sectors of the economy, encourage small business, increase the volume of credit and financial resources, allocated to the population.

“Moreover, the most of the state budget funds will be invested to education, healthcare, and the Pension Fund”, emphasized the President of Turkmenistan.
