The thwarted infiltration attempt undertaken by the Azerbaijani forces in the direction of Kuropatkino settlement in Artsakh’s Martuni region was a unique response to Armenian President’s call to the Azerbaijani MP to calm down, Artsakh Ombudsman Ruben Melikyan said in a Facebook post.
“They will not calm down as long as universal Armenophobia is dominating in Azerbaijan,” Melikyan said.
“We’ll have to be on the alert for a long time. We definitely have to be committed to the respect for human rights. I think this is one of the guarantees of our truthfulness and justness,” the Ombudsman said.
The comments come in the wake of a fresh infiltration attempt by the Azeri special forces in the southeastern direction of the line of contact between the armed forces of Artsakh and Azerbaijan.
At a Q&A session following his speech at PACE winter session, President Serzh Sargsyan asked Azerbaijani delegate Samid Seyidov to calm down and stop distorting his words
