Armenia Ready to Suppress Attack by Azerbaijan

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–Armenia’s Armed Forces are prepared to suppress a possible attack by Azerbaijan or any other state–said Armenian Deputy Defense Minister–Lieutenant General Artur Aghabekian.

Commenting on the more frequent cease fire violations between the Armenian and Azeri Armed Forces recently–Aghabekian said that similar incidents have occurred since the Karabagh cease fire was established in 1994.

Aghabekian said the violations have become more frequent lately for a number of reasons–such as the restructuring of trenches near troop positions and more aggressive statemen’s by Azeri officials.

"I can assure you that in case our positions are fired on–we will respond in an adequate manner," the lieutenant general said.
