karabakhairport“The Armenian air defense system will ensure the security of the civilian aircrafts flying from Stepanakert,” Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohnayan told a press conference on Saturday, adding that “the threats of Azerbaijan contradict the international civil aviation norms.”
As for the possibility of resumption of military actions, the Minister said the threat is still there, but the analysis of the situation shows that the possibility of war is not probable at this point.
By shooting down civilian planes heading from the Stepanakert airport, Azerbaijan will provoke a new war over Karabakh, stated David Babayan, a spokesperson for the Nagorno-Karabakh president.
According to him, the legalization of such a measure by the country’s government is yet another proof that Armenia faces an abnormal neighbor suffering from morbid fantasies.
Babayan noted that the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) is not going to step back from the decision to operate the airport.
“We are not going to step back from our decision of course, regardless of Aliyev’s behavior. We are capable of ensuring the security of our air space and the entire Karabakh in general,” he said.
Babayan noted that a decision to shoot down civilian aircrafts is peculiar only to a country preaching fascism.
“To me, the decision adopted by their government is the most blatant manifestation of fascism and Armenophobia. A state has to be abnormal to adopt such a decision on its government level. That’s nothing but terrorism,” he said.
Babayan added that it is important for both Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh to raise the question in all international tribunals.
