Islamabad (UNA-OIC) – Pakistan on Saturday rejected Armenian Prime Minister’s allegations referring to some unsubstantiated reports about involvement of Pakistani special forces alongside Azerbaijani army in the ongoing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
“We categorically reject these baseless and unwarranted comments by the Armenian Prime Minister. President Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijan has also clarified his stance on the matter stating that Azerbaijani forces are strong enough to defend their homeland and do not need the help of foreign forces,” Foreign office spokesperson said in a press release.
“It is regrettable that leadership of Armenia, to cover up its illegal actions against Azerbaijan, is resorting to irresponsible propaganda, which it must stop,” the spokesperson further said.
“For our part, we wish to make clear that Pakistan has consistently extended diplomatic, moral and political support to Azerbaijan,” he said, adding that Pakistan would continue to stand by the brotherly nation of Azerbaijan and support its right of self-defense against any aggression.
The spokesperson said that Pakistan believed that long-term peace and normalization of relations between the two parties would depend on the complete and comprehensive implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions and withdrawal of Armenian forces from Azerbaijani territories.
