NKR Defense Army Commander:  With retaliatory actions we try to explain Baku that such developments will repeat "1992-1994" and result in "12 May, 1994"

 "With our retaliatory actions we try to explain Baku that such developments will repeat "1992-1994" and result in "12 May, 1994"," says NKR Defense Army Commander Lt. General Movses Hakobyan in an interview with Armenian Public Television. 


"Since 28 July the enemy has made a number of intelligence and sabotage attempts. On August 1-3 the enemy attacked our combat positions several times. This means that suffering failure in the negotiations, Azerbaijan tries to destabilize the situation in the region with such methods. We have already informed the public that the enemy was thrown back. The frontline divisions of the Defense Army perfectly fulfill their tasks and confidently protect the border. Our frontline is inviolable," Movses Hakobyan says.


He blames new Defense Minister of Azerbaijan Zakir Hasanov for fuelling tensions. According to him, Hasanov with his trigger-happy policy tries to outshine his predecessor Safar Abiyev. The second reason of the upsurge in tension, he says, is Baku's failure in the peace process. According to Lt. General Hakobyan, Baku tries to draw the attention of the OSCE MG co-chair-states to the NK process by means of blackmail. 


On May 12, 1994, a trilateral ceasefire agreement was signed between Azerbaijan, Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh and the military actions were stopped. Azerbaijan unleashed war in 1991 following the statement by the NK Armenians to withdraw from Azerbaijan. In fact, Azerbaijan lost control on Nagorno Karabakh and 7 adjacent regions. Nearly 30,000 people died on both sides and nearly half a million people had to flee.
