Armenia’s Foreign Ministry denies the accusations of the Azerbaijani defense ministry against Armenia on striking the Azerbaijani region of Dashkasan from the Armenian region of Vardenis, Armenian MFA spokeswoman Anna Naghdalyan said on social media.

“This information is a complete lie and aims at preparing a ground for the expansion of the geography of military operations, as well as conducting an aggression against Armenia. We strongly condemn Azerbaijan’s attempts of further destabilizing the regional peace and security. Azerbaijan’s military-political leadership bears the full responsibility for the consequences of these attempts”, she said.

On September 27 early morning the Azerbaijani military launched a massive cross-border attack on Artsakh, including on civilian settlements. Peaceful settlements are also under shelling, including the capital city of Stepanakert.
