ArmInfo. Today, after midnight, not far from the Georgian village of Kvemo Ponichala, unknown people threw stones at Armenian trucks, smashed the front and side windows of some trucks, and then fled the scene. This is stated in the statement of the Armenian Foreign Ministry in connection with reports that more than three dozen Armenian trucks were attacked in the Georgian Marneuli.
The Armenian Foreign Ministry stressed that after the incident, Armenian trucks, accompanied by the Georgian patrol police, reached the Georgian-Armenian border and crossed it. "In connection with this incident, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia has opened a criminal case.
The Embassy of the Republic of Armenia in Georgia is in constant contact with the relevant Georgian bodies, while at the same time actively working to bring the perpetrators to justice within the framework of the law in order to prevent the repetition of such cases," the Armenian Foreign Ministry stressed.
Earlier, the media reported that yesterday after midnight in Marneul the Turks attacked a convoy of Armenian trucks, destroying more than 30 of them. It should be noted that this is the second case of an enemy attack on Armenian trucks in the last month. Armenian MP Taguhi Tovmasyan also reacted to this incident.
"Armenian truck drivers faced problems in the predominantly Azeri-populated city of Marneuli," member of the National Assembly of Armenia Taguhi Tovmsyan wrote on her Facebook page.
In connection with the concerns of the Armenian cargo carriers, the MP addressed the RA Foreign Minister Ara Aivazian. "Apparently, the Azerbaijanis living in Marneuli threw stones at cars with Armenian license plates, some of them had broken windows and thus, according to the drivers, there were obstacles to their movement. This is about a dozen trucks. I asked the Minister to resolve the issue as soon as possible, so that cars with Armenian numbers can safely arrive in Armenia. Let's hope that the Georgian authorities will not leave this crime unpunished, "the MP wrote.
