Azerbaijan to provide support to Karabakh civilians and servicemen laying down their arms
The Azerbaijani authorities will provide support to the civilian population of Nagorno Karabakh and the servicemen who will lay down their arms, Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan - Head of the Foreign Policy Affairrs Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmat Hajiyev said.
He stressed that as President Ilham Aliyev noted, the Azerbaijani army doesn’t deal with the civilian population of Nagorno Karabakh.
The Azerbaijani authorities are ready to provide all the necessary humanitarian support to the civilian population and the Armenian servicemen wishing to go over to the side of Azerbaijan, based on the principles of humanism and the Geneva Conventions," Hajiyev stressed.
Hajiyev also commented on the use of military uniforms of the State Border Service of Azerbaijan by Armenian servicemen.
According to him, the Armenian Ministry of Defense has disseminated photographs of the head of this structure David Tonoyan with servicemen. "The fact that Armenian soldiers in military uniform of the State Border Service of Azerbaijan were sitting next to the Minister of Armenia proves the fact that such "Bollywood" films are being shot under the leadership of the Armenian Defense Ministry," Hajiyev stressed.
The Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan noted that soldiers dressed in military uniforms of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, can be passed off by the Armenian side as mercenaries, allegedly fighting on the side of Azerbaijan.
