ArmInfo. The armed forces of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh have a
high combat practice and the necessary arms to worthily rebuff any
encroachment, the press-service of the Armenian defense ministry told
ArmInfo when commenting on another lie of Eldar Sabiroglu, the head
of the Azerbaijani defense ministry press-service.

"In particular, yesterday Sabiroglu once again came out with a number
of statements disseminating false information about the number of
Armenian population, reinforcement of armed forces and the situation
in the borderline zone. The disseminated information that Armenia
has a shortage of human resources and the country cannot form the
necessary detachments is false",- the Armenian defense ministry’s
press-release says.

In this connection, the Armenian defense ministry said that the autumn
call-up is being held according to the schedule and army recruitment is
already ensured by over 70%. "As regards the information disseminated
by the Azeri defense ministry press-service is repetition of the
thoughts published by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on November
17",- the source says.
