There is no evidence of the participation of foreign mercenaries in the hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region on the side of Azerbaijan, said Chairman of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs of Germany Heiko Maas.

Maas made the statement while answering the question of an Armenian MP at the PACE winter session.

“You say that Azerbaijan used foreign mercenaries in the hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. So far, no evidence has been found,” the minister added.
