Armenia denies Azerbaijan’s accusations of laying mines

YEREVAN, AUGUST 15, ARMENPRESS. Ambassador-at-Large Edmon Marukyan has denied Azerbaijan’s accusations that Armenia is laying mines and emphasized that Yerevan has given Baku all maps of minefields as part of building confidence.

Marukyan responded on social media to Azeri presidential assistant Hikmet Hajiyev, who falsely accused Armenia of laying mines.

“Till today, the Armenian parties have taken all the necessary steps, in the context of confidence building, including handing over all the landmine maps to Azerbaijan, but in response, Azerbaijan continues to make false accusations about ongoing installation of minefields and contrary to the agreements didn’t even release prisoners of war and other people in its prisons as a measure to build confidence. Azerbaijan regularly attacks and occupies different parts of the sovereign territory of Armenia, violates the fundamental obligations of November 9 and keeps the people of Nagorno Karabakh under a complete blockade. It would be better for Hikmet Hajiyev to stop this campaign of falsehood, because it by no means can distract the attention of the international community from the topic of ethnic cleansing policy conducted by Azerbaijan,” Marukyan said on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.
