Azerbaijan works to get body of its soldier killed in Armenian provocation
Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry continues joint work with relevant structures to receive the body of Azerbaijani soldier, Gurbanov Chingiz, who died as a result of the Armenian provocation on Dec. 29, the ministry said.
"Despite the fact that initially, the Armenian side denied that it has the body of Azerbaijani soldier, however, shortly after the relevant measures conducted by the Defense Ministry and the availability of conclusive evidences forced Armenia to disseminate photos of the soldier's body on social media," Trend cited the ministry as saying.
In order to receive the body of the Azerbaijani soldier, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry officially appealed to the Azerbaijani representation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the OSCE Minsk Group, as well as Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk.
A reconnaissance group of the Armenian Armed Forces tried to violate the Azerbaijan-Armenia state border on Dec. 29 morning, but was forced to retreat.
