The Armenian intelligence monitors the Azeri Defense Ministry's phone talks and is aware of all that is said inside the ministry, Azeri military expert Uzeir Jafarov says in his Facebook page.
"They do it by tapping mobile lines. They are aware of all the details of the last conference held by our Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov with the commanders of the frontline units," Jafarov says.
He claims that Armenia's Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan is regularly informed of what the Azeri military commanders discuss during their meetings and reports this to his President Serzh Sargsyan, who, in his turn, uses this information to appear in the press with threats against Azerbaijan.
"Our generals were surprised to find out that the words they spoke secretly were known in Armenia. They later learned that the whole conference was eavesdropped by the enemy with the help of a mobile phone. After that our Defense Minister instructed his team not to use mobile phones when in office. But a few high-ranking officers still continue doing it. So, I see no sense in this measure," Jafarov says.
