Baku, October 16, AZERTAC
The Turkish Foreign Ministry on Friday strongly condemned the Armenian forces’ attack on Azerbaijan’s Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic.
“We strongly condemn the missile attack that Armenia’s armed forces launched from the occupied Gubadli region to Ordubad region of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic,” the ministry said in a statement.
“It is seen that Armenia is getting more aggressive day by day due to the defeats it has suffered in the occupied territories,” it said.
The statement noted that the attack on the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic -- which also borders Turkey -- is the “new and dangerous example” of Armenia’s efforts to spread clashes out of the Azerbaijani lands under its occupation.
“Armenia needs to give up on these dangerous provocations,” it added.
The ministry also said Armenia commits a war crime by attacking civilians and violates the humanitarian ceasefire, and “now it tries to carry the conflict to other dimensions.”
“Armenia should evaluate well the consequences of its aggressive actions,” the statement stressed.
It reiterated Turkey’s “full solidarity” with Azerbaijan and its people.
