Azeri Defense Minister Warns Sarkisian

TURKEY-AZERBAIJAN/BAKU (APA)—Azeri defense minister Safar Abiyev Thursday warned Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian about his recent visit to the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

“This will be his last visit there,” Abiyev told reporters adding that Sarkisian had no right to visit what he termed “occupied lands.”

In speaking about the combat readiness of the Azeri military, Abiyev said “the Armed Forces are capable of liberating the occupied lands.”

“We are aware of everything that has happened. The enemy cannot be active,” warned Abiyev when asked about last week’s exercises in Karabakh, inspected by Sarkisian and Nagorno-Karabakh Republic President Bako Sahakian.

Abiyev also told reporters that the Turkish defense minister was scheduled to visit Baku on November 2.

    The Azeri Defense Minister should really learn to put a sock in it. If he really wants to be constructive let him order his goon squad to take down some more Turkish flags.

    It is very difficult not to underestimate azeri troops. Just look at them! They look like bunch of idiots.

    Is he talking about the same looser so-called “Army” which deserted one villages after another leaving behind all its military hardware and taking Azeri villagers instead as shield?
    That “Army”?
