U.S. Department of State: threats to shoot down Karabakh-bound planes unacceptable

PanARMENIAN.Net - U.S. Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Gordon commented on Baku’s threats to shoot down Karabakh-bound civil aircrafts.

“We had heard such threats and, very quickly and clearly, made clear our view that threats to take out a civilian aircraft there and in any other context are unacceptable and really shouldn’t be issued. Since then, we have noted, and the Minsk Group Co-Chairs have noted, Azerbaijan making clear that it had no intention of doing so. And we think that is the only constructive way forward on that,” Gordon said at Foreign Press Center in Washington, answering a question of the Armenian Public TV.
