 Azerbaijani ombudsperson calls Armenian provocations ‘serious treat’ to regional peace

Armenia’s continued military provocations against Azerbaijan pose a serious threat to lasting peace in the region, Azerbaijan’s Human Rights Commissioner (Ombudsman) Sabina Aliyeva said on Tuesday, AzVision.az reports.

The ombudsperson recalled that on November 16, 2021, the Armenian military formations launched a sudden military operation in order to capture the high grounds in the direction of Kalbajar and Lachin districts of the state border of Azerbaijan.

“Two Azerbaijani servicemen were wounded in intensive attacks against Azerbaijani combat posts with small arms and grenades of various calibers. Armenia’s repeated violation of international law, as well as the requirements of the Tripartite Statement of November 10, 2020, signed between the leaders of Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia, has led to new hotbeds of conflict, killing and injuring innocent people,” she added.

Ombudsperson Aliyeva stressed that such provocative actions are a serious threat to lasting peace in the region and the repatriation of many IDPs forcibly expelled from their native lands, calling on Armenia to refrain from aggression, respecting fundamental human rights.
