On the eve of the country's Armed Forces Day, Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov gave an interview to the state agency AzerTAG, Turan reported.
"We have every opportunity to hit any object and settlement on the territory of Armenia. However, for the current situation the peaceful Armenian population is not to blame and it constrains us," said Hasanov
Referring to tensions on the front line, the minister said that the reason for this is the continued "occupation of the territory" of Azerbaijan by Armenia. "Armenians fire on our positions, trying to carry out reconnaissance and sabotage attacks, sniper fire at our civilians, damage farmland," he said. Therefore, the enemy must be spoken in its own language, and we do it, the enemy is losing and we take revenge for our martyrs. So it will be after that," said Hasanov.
Speaking about the relationship of forces, the minister said that in the last period of Azerbaijan's military budget has increased by 20 times. "Military spending this year exceed the costs in 2013 by 7.1%.
At the same time, Armenia's military expenditure in 2014 was 5.3 times smaller than our military budget. "
