FO refutes reports of Pak army fighting in Azerbaijani against Armenia

Islamabad (Web Desk): The Foreign Office (FO) on Friday strongly rejected the media reports claiming Pakistan army fighting alongside Azerbaijani forces against Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh, terming it “speculative, baseless and irresponsible”.


FO Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said Pakistan was deeply concerned over the deteriorating security situation in Nagorno-Karabakh region. “The intensive shelling by Armenian forces on civilian populations of Azerbaijan is reprehensible and most unfortunate,” the spokesperson said.

Chaudhri said Pakistan supported Azerbaijan’s position on Nagorno-Karabakh, in line with the several unanimously adopted United Nations Security Council resolutions.

The spokesperson said the situation could “compromise peace and security of the entire region”, stressing that Armenia must stop its military action to avoid further escalation.
