Stepanakert, 2 June: The press service of the government of the
Nagornyy Karabakh republic has denied the Azerbaijani media report
that Armenians have allegedly started burning houses, other facilities
and sowing areas in Azerbaijani villages of Agdam District which is
under the control of Nagornyy Karabakh.
“Baku knows very well that these villages were destroyed during the
war launched by Azerbaijan in 1991-1994. At the same time, destruction
is the main result of artillery strikes by the Azerbaijani side. It is
quite clear why Baku recalls this today – prior to a meeting between
the Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents. This is another attempt by
Azerbaijani propaganda to discredit Nagornyy Karabakh in the eyes of
the international community,” the government press service of Nagornyy
Karabakh has told Arminfo.
