Azerbaijan strongly condemns the attack by the Armenian armed forces with Kornet-type anti-tank missile on Euronews film crew, which is carrying out professional journalistic activities in Azerbaijan’s Talish and Sugovushan villages liberated from occupation, said Hikmet Hajiyev, Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan, Head of Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration.

Hajiyev regarded Armenia’s attack as an aggression against freedom of speech and professional journalism.

“Fortunately, the missile dodged the target, and the film crew was not hurt. The vehicle was damaged,” he said.

The presidential aide noted that the attack with the use of an anti-tank guided missile on a vehicle with the Euronews distinctive sign from a long distance is purposeful.
