YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 28, ARMENPRESS. Armenia always sees a danger of border escalation by Azerbaijan, Speaker of Parliament Alen Simonyan has said.

Simonyan was asked whether there’s a risk of escalation given that Washington has said it would have to use whatever tools it could to avoid having a trade route created by non-peaceful means.

“We always see a danger of escalation. Why we always see it, because there are numerous examples, when in late August of 2022 a meeting took place and thirteen days later Azerbaijan launched military operations. I mean we never rule out anything, a politician can’t rule out [anything]. The U.S. official’s statement is a warning,” Simonyan said, adding that Armenia is ready for peace and wants peace.
