The Turkish Grand National Assembly has issued a statement condemning Armenia’s aggressive policy, Defence.az reports on July 17 referring to the official website of the Turkish parliament.


The Turkish Grand National Assembly firmly condemns the provocation of the Armenian armed forces, which began on July 12, 2020, the document reads.

"Armenia is on the wrong path,” the statement said. “While keeping the Azerbaijani lands, namely, Nagorno-Karabakh region and the surrounding districts, under occupation for many years, it poses a big obstacle to peace and stability in the South Caucasus.”

“We urge the international community to respond to such behavior of Armenia, which ignores justice and law,” the statement said. “We reiterate our support for the peaceful settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict within the internationally recognized borders and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.”

“Armenia must comply with the UN Security Council’s and OSCE’s resolutions and withdraw its armed forces from the occupied Azerbaijani territories," the statement said.

Starting from noon on July 12, units of the armed forces of Armenia, grossly violating the ceasefire in the direction of Azerbaijan’s Tovuz district along the Azerbaijani-Armenian state border, opened artillery fire at Azerbaijani positions.

Azerbaijan's armed response forced the Armenian army to retreat suffering losses.

Azerbaijani personnel, sergeant of military service Vugar Sadigov and corporal Elshad Mammadov, died while repelling the attack of the Armenian armed forces.

Despite the efforts of the Azerbaijani doctors, severely wounded serviceman of the Azerbaijani army Khayyam Dashdemirov also died.

The tension remained in Tovuz district on the Azerbaijan-Armenia state border on July 12 night.

During the night battles, by using artillery, mortars and tanks, the Azerbaijani armed forces destroyed a stronghold, bombshells, vehicles and servicemen on the territory of the Armenia’s military unit.

Azerbaijani serviceman, senior lieutenant Rashad Mahmudov was killed during the battles.

The battles continued on the night of July 13. Major General Polad Hashimov, Colonel Ilgar Mirzoyev, Major Namig Ahmadov, Major Anar Novruzov, Ensign Ilgar Zeynalli, Ensign Yashar Babayev and soldier Elchin Mustafazade became martyrs during the battles.
