WESTERN ARMENIA – President Armenak Abrahamyan, who has been in Yerevan for the past few days, condemns the Azeri attacks on Artsakh. 

For several days now, information has been circulating that Turkish-backed jihadist forces from the Afrin region of Syria have joined Azerbaijan.

President Armenak Abrahamyan, like the Artsakh authorities, followed the movement of these terrorist forces to Azerbaijan, so the military authorities of Armenia and Artsakh were ready for aggression.

However, the situation escalated on Sunday morning at 7:00 am, when the Azerbaijani armed forces began bombarding the entire Armenian border, as well as the city of Stepanakert.

Artsakh President Arayik Harutyunyan has already made an official statement and stated about the victims.The Republic of Armenia announced that its borders are closed but President Armenak Abrahamyan plans to visit Artsakh as soon as possible.

President Armenak Abrahamyan is discussing with the Artsakh authorities the possibility of applying to volunteer fighters from Western Armenia.
