Artsakh President Dismisses Claims of Azerbaijani Aggression Linked to Elections

President of the Republic of Artsakh, Samvel Shahramanyan, has vehemently denied claims suggesting that Azerbaijan's military aggression against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) was a result of recent elections that took place in Artsakh. In an interview with the Artsakh Public Television Company, Shahramanyan clarified that Azerbaijan had long-standing plans for military operations in the region, entirely unrelated to electoral events.


Addressing the notion that Azerbaijan's actions were prompted by political changes in Artsakh, Shahramanyan stated, "I am familiar with that false thesis. I want to assure you that the Azerbaijani side does not take into account what processes are being carried out in Artsakh, and it is clear that the plan for these military operations was not developed after my election. It was pre-planned and prepared."

Shahramanyan revealed the intensity of the situation faced by Armenia and Artsakh, highlighting the prolonged period of blockade and siege endured by the citizens of Artsakh by the Azerbaijanis. He described how his role as the Secretary of the Security Council involved constant monitoring of Azerbaijani activities along the line of contact. The president emphasized that the accumulation of Azerbaijani armed forces, heavy equipment, artillery, and specialized personnel close to Armenian settlements had been a cause for concern for several months.


"It is not correct and is a false thesis to say that this idea came to Azerbaijan in recent days and is related to the elections in Artsakh," Shahramanyan affirmed, dispelling any notion that recent political developments in Artsakh had sparked the military aggression.
