 Armenians set fire to civilian objects in Azerbaijan

The consequences of illegal settlement of the Armenians in the Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan must be eliminated said Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan, Head of Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmet Hajiyev at the briefing held on November 15 touching on the relevant UNSC resolution on Kalbajar.

"Armenians are burning civilian objects in Kalbajar before leaving which was also reported by the foreign media. Armenians damage both the environment and civilian objects. This is environmental terrorism which must be prevented. Also,  they started destroying the cultural monuments in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan before being evicted from those lands", the presidential aide added.

Note, following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is introduced at 00:00 hours (Moscow time) on 10 November 2020.
