    Comment by the NKR MFA Press Service
    Statement by the head of the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry about the alleged military use of monuments of Islamic architecture located on the territory of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic does not correspond to reality and is another allegation in a series of fraud and forgery, constantly used by the Azerbaijani side. Azerbaijan, with its rich experience of using religious monuments for military purposes, which is proved by the conversion of the Kazanchetsots church in Shushi into a military warehouse in 1992, once again is trying to ascribe its own behaviour to the Karabakh side.

    NKR MFA Statement
    Following the large-scale aggression on 2-5 April this year against the Nagorno Karabakh Republic (NKR), Azerbaijani authorities continue their efforts to finally derail the peace process and transfer it to a military dimension. Azerbaijani attempts at the UN and the OSCE to unilaterally denounce the trilateral cease-fire agreement of 12 May 1994 come to prove this. At the same time, Azerbaijan resorts to its traditional practice of fraud and manipulation, trying to put the blame on the Armenian sides and thereby avoid responsibility for unleashing the war.
