In a statement, the RA Foreign Ministry called the sabotage carried out by Baku against Artsakh on March 5 terrorism, noting that under the existing conditions, sending an international investigation group to Berdzor and Artsakh becomes a vital necessity.

“As a result of the sabotage attack by the Azerbaijani armed forces in Artsakh on March 5, three officers of the Passport and Visa Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Artsakh were killed and one was injured. The facts prove that this was a pre-planned provocation instructed by the highest leadership of Azerbaijan. After the incident, the official bodies of Azerbaijan disseminated information that they had received operational information that weapons, ammunition and personnel were being transferred from Armenia to Artsakh and implemented this operational information.

The actions of the Azerbaijani subversive group cannot be qualified as terrorism. Along with the actions aimed at blocking the Berdzor road and creating a humanitarian catastrophe in Artsakh for almost three months, Azerbaijan continues to terrorize the Armenian population of Artsakh with the ultimate goal of ethnic cleansing by creating inhuman living conditions in their homeland,” the statement said.

Condemning Azerbaijan’s aggressive and offensive actions, Western Armenia calls on international structures to impose sanctions on the Azerbaijani aggressor. This proves once again that Azerbaijan does not want peace and the only document that can establish a lasting peace in the region is the Sevres Treaty
