Ministry commentary: Azeri adventurism with lethal end

PanARMENIAN.Net - Spokesman for the Armenian Defense Ministry, Artsrun Hovhannisyan commented on the Azerbaijani media reports regarding the “discovery of the dead body of soldier Elcin Orujov in the neutral territory near the contact line between Armenian and Azeri armed forces.”

“This is nothing but a consequence of Azerbaijani adventurism, and the fact that an Azeri soldier was found in a zone controlled by Armenian forces serves as a perfect proof of this policy. Thanks to the vigilance of the Armenian military, the provocation was foiled,” Hovhannisyan said.

“The trespasser was discovered and apparently wounded by the Armenian servicemen on duty when trying to get back,” he said, adding that the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry is responsible for the incident.
