The extension of the conscription period will have no impact on the combat capability of the Army, said the Defence Ministry. 


“Azerbaijan has achieved a professional army thanks to the reforms conducted in the Armed Forces under the leadership of the country’s President, Supreme Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev,” informs the ministry.

“At present, conscripts make a small percentage of the Army’s personnel. Officers, ensigns, and overtime conscripts serve in the positions that ensure combat security,” said the statement.

Under the special quarantine regime requirements, the process of demobilization in the Azerbaijan Army was scheduled for the period from April 20 to 25.

The Defence Ministry will ensure the transportation of released personnel during this period.

Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani parliament decided to extend the period of conscription for military service until May 31.
