The preparation of new provocation plans proves that Armenia does not aim to achieve the peaceful solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict but to continue the illegal occupation of Azerbaijani territories, according to the press service of the Azerbaijan Prosecutor General’s Office.

Armenia tries to escalate the tension on the contact line instead of holding negotiations by committing provocations and crimes, the Prosecutor General’s Office noted.

On September 21, at 09:20, as a result of another provocation of the opposite side in the Tovuz direction on the Armenia-Azerbaijan state border, a serviceman of the Azerbaijan Army, Junior Sergeant Mammadov Elshan Ali was killed.

Upon the fact, a criminal case has been initiated at Shamkir District Prosecutor’s Office under Article 100.2 (waging aggressive war) and Article 29, 120.2.12 (deliberate murder based on national, racial, religious hatred or enmity) of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Azerbaijan, relevant expert examinations were appointed.
