Press release

14 May, 2021
The situation created after the encroachments on May 12-13 by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces on the border areas of Syunik and Gegharkunik regions of the Republic of Armenia under the pretext of "border adjustment" has not changed yet.

The Armenian side presented the Azerbaijani military its clear demand to return to the original positions without any preconditions.

The negotiations on a peaceful settlement of the issue, which began on May 12, will continue tomorrow.

The information spreading since this morning on the internet and various media about the new cases of advancement of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces subdivisions does not correspond to reality.

Azerbaijani subdivisions not only did not advance after May 13, but as a result of the actions of the Armenian Armed Forces, they were forced to leave some territories.

Once again, we urge you to refrain from disseminating unverified, moreover, false information, especially on such sensitive issues.

In case of any development of the situation, the Ministry of Defence will issue a corresponding statement.
