Karabakh won’t cede an inch of land to Azerbaijan: Armenian Minister

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan’s violence in Nagorno Karabakh contains genocidal elements, Armenia’s Defense Minister said at the Genocide memorial in Tsitsernakaberd on Sunday, April 24.

Commenting on the 4-day military actions in Karabakh, Seyran Ohanyan cited Armenian soldiers’ combat readiness as a big advantage, adding that “the shortcomings have been analyzed for a further improvement of the situation.”

“We are not going to cede an inch of land to Azerbaijan,” the Minister said.

“The situation was rather tense in the northern (Martakert) section of the contact line on April 23. Azerbaijan escalates the situation on important days to check our vigilance. Karabakh frontline units, however, control the situation on the contact line, ready for any developments.”

Also, the Minister refuted Azerbaijani media claims that a Karabakh tank has been destroyed.
