YEREVAN, OCTOBER 13, ARMENPRESS. The information about releasing the Iranian drivers arrested by Azerbaijan on Goris-Kapan road does not correspond to the reality, ARMENPRESS reports the Azerbaijani media outlets inform that the statement issued by the State Customs Committee of Azerbaijan said.

The information about releasing the drivers had been spread by Iranian Mehr agency, adding that it happened after the phone conversation between the Iranian and Azerbaijani FMs.

On the Vorotan section of the Goris-Kapan highway, the masked and armed Azerbaijani servicemen stopped the drivers of the Iranian trucks, checked the documents and demanded money, substantiating that "they have to pay a tax to enter the territory of their country." They then arrested the Iranian drivers.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
