YEREVAN. – Azerbaijani and Turkish special services, with active involvement by the local community organizations, have made attempts at obstructing the holding of Armenian Genocide Centennial commemorations in several foreign countries.
Chief of the National Security Service (NSS) of Armenia, Colonel General Gorik Hakobyan, stated the aforesaid at Friday’s special session devoted to the national security service officers’ day in Armenia.
“[But] these intentions were exposed and prevented on time,” Hakobyan added. “And second, during the passing year, Azerbaijani armed units tried several times to aggravate the situation on the line of contact (…), all of which have failed.
“The [Armenian] national security agencies (…) were able to perform their task by keeping our population away from the harmful activities of the adversary.”
In the NSS chief’s words, however, the Azerbaijani special services’ inimical aspirations and attempts of provocative actions against Armenia do not stop in several other directions.
