Tensions have once again erupted in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which had witnessed a fierce war last year between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan has captured 6 Armenia soldiers. Defense ministries of both countries have confirmed this. Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense said on Thursday that the Armenian troops captured were trying to cross its border into the Kelbazar area.
Azerbaijan said that Armenian soldiers were trying to lay a landmine in the way of Azerbaijani soldiers and they were surrounded and taken captive. On the other hand, Armenia has said that its soldiers were doing engineering work in the eastern Gegharkunik area. This area is adjacent to Azerbaijan. Armenia said that necessary steps are being taken to rescue these soldiers.
America expressed concern over the growing tension between the two countries
Meanwhile, Armenian Prime Minister Nicole Pashinyan has called for international observers from Russia or other countries to be deployed along the border of Azerbaijan. He said that the atmosphere in this area is tense. Meanwhile, the US has expressed concern over the rising tension between the two countries and said that all six soldiers should be released immediately from the Azerbaijan side. Thousands of people died in the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan last year.
Armenia had to lose a part of itself in Nargono Karabakh. Since then, Russian troops have been stationed there. Both the countries want to capture part of Nagorno-Karabakh, spread over 4,400 square kilometers. The Nagorno-Karabakh region is internationally part of Azerbaijan but is occupied by ethnic groups from Armenia. In 1991, the people of this region declared themselves independent of Azerbaijan and declared part of Armenia. Azerbaijan rejected his action completely. Thereafter, there are frequent conflicts between the two countries at certain intervals.
