The Azeri army has low combat effectiveness and the Armenian public has made sure of it following the recent Azeri sabotage attacks that took lives of dozens of Azeri soldiers, Major-General Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan (Kommandos), hero of Artsakh war, said at today's press conference in Yerevan.
Ter-Tadevosyan said that besides numerous experts, NATO specialists and Turkish instructors also admit the low combat effectiveness of the Azeri army. "The Armenian and Karabakh contract soldiers were able to repel the sabotage attacks of the Azeri special groups, which were trained in Turkey. Baku cannot create an impression that it can fight against Armenia", he said.
He added that Armenia, in turn, should choose correct tactics, including the tactics in the mass media. "It is necessary to understand that the Azeri people want no war. Moreover, the Azeri army consists of not only Azeris but also Talishes, Lezgins, Tats and other nationalities. I do not think that the state with numerous interethnic problems can really unleash war and win it", he stressed.
