David Tonoyan: Azerbaijani Armed Forces <have not liberated> any   territories in the Nakhijevan direction

ArmInfo.The Armed Forces of Azerbaijan <did not liberate> any territories in the Nakhchivan area. This was announced on November 12 during a meeting with  journalists. Armenian Defense Minister David Tonoyan, referring to  information about the "liberation of the territories" in the  direction of Nakhijevan, which periodically circulates in the  Azerbaijani media.

<Taking into account the agreements reached in Dushanbe and in order  to avoid rhetoric, I, as the head of the defense department, declare  that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces "have not liberated" any  territories in the Nakhijevan direction. Some reduction in the  distance between posts was recorded, however, not at the expense of  the positions of the Armenian Armed Forces. We both stood in their  places, and stand. The reduction of the distances occurred in the  territory of the Nakhchivan Republic, which is not controlled by the  RA Armed Forces>, the acting president said. Minister of Defense of  RA.

At the same time, he stated that earlier, the Armenian Armed Forces  recorded a reduction in the distances between positions and  successful measures were taken to prevent similar actions in the  future. "The inter- post distance has decreased, but not at the  expense of the Armenian side. In some cases, we even improved our  positions, and not only in the territory of the Republic of Armenia,  "the defense minister informed.

Touching on the fears of local residents, Tonoyan expressed  bewilderment at the fact that such anxiety exists only on the  Armenian side, and the Azerbaijani population is silent. "We are  talking with the population, we explain that their fears are  groundless, and all possible risks of the Armenian armed forces have  been reduced," he said, adding that this issue was raised at the  international level and there are already certain solutions in this  direction.
