Yerevan denied Baku’s statement about the accumulation of Armenian troops on the border.

The Armenian Ministry of Defense on its website denied the report of the Azerbaijani side about the accumulation of Armenian troops on the border with Azerbaijan.

“The message disseminated by the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan that the armed forces of the Republic of Armenia are allegedly carrying out accumulations and active movements of personnel, armored vehicles, artillery and other fire weapons in various directions of the border zone does not correspond to reality,” the Armenian military department said in a statement.


The Armenian Ministry of Defense also reported that on March 30, photographs of recruit drivers performing a motor rally as part of the training process were distributed in a number of Telegram channels, trying to present this as a movement of troops to the borders, which “does not correspond to reality.”

“The Ministry of Defense of Armenia assesses the recent operational situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border as stable and does not see the need to take additional measures to protect the border,” the statement says.

In 2022, Yerevan and Baku, through the mediation of Russia, the United States and the EU, began discussing a future peace treaty. At the end of May last year, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that Yerevan is ready to recognize the sovereignty of Azerbaijan within Soviet borders, that is, together with Karabakh.
