War could restart between Azerbaijan, Armenia – Baku spokesman
BAKU Nov 30
The risk of another war between Azerbaijan and Armenia continues to
exist, Azeri Defense Ministry spokesman Eldar Sabiroglu told a news
conference on Friday.
"The risk of an outbreak of war always exists and there is no
guarantee against it, Sabiroglu said.
"What can be done, if the talks are dragging on for so long? Let
international organizations liberate our occupied territory
peacefully, or allow Azerbaijan to do so on its own?" he said.
"Morale is very strong in our army. The army has an ample supply of
modern weapons and is prepared to free the occupied territory,"
"Azerbaijan is in a state of war today and is acting accordingly.
We do not threaten any country, but 20% of our territory remains
occupied. Naturally, appropriate steps are being made. This is
Azerbaijan’s exclusive right," said Sabiroglu.
