He said that in order to involve third countries in the conflict, along with the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenian troops are firing on other border areas of Azerbaijan.
"The Azerbaijani Army has been ordered not to open fire on Armenian settlements and civilians. The successful counter-offensive of our Armed Forces is aimed only at military equipment and facilities.
