Edmon Marukyan, Ambassador-at-large of Armenia, Chairman of Bright Armenia Party, wrote on his Facebook page:
“During the last week, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan has been spreading false statements almost every day, as if the Armenian forces fired in different directions of the contact line, and they took retaliatory actions, after which the fire was silenced.
Naturally, the relevant defense departments of the Armenian side deny those rumors, noting that no military unit of the Armenian side opened fire in the direction of Azerbaijan.
Many people ask why Azerbaijan organizes and consistently implements this disinformation. We all know that when Azerbaijan plans another border provocation, before carrying it out it organizes a false basis of informational legitimization of this provocation.
All actors of the international community, who are interested in the Armenian-Azerbaijani peace process and the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, should follow very carefully and clearly realize that once again Azerbaijan has started a preparatory process of provocation.
In this situation, a targeted international response can prevent this new provocation being prepared.”
