Pakistan condemns Armenian attack on Tovuz in Azerbaijan

Islamabad (Web Desk): Pakistan has strongly condemned the attack by Armenian forces on the Tovuz district of Azerbaijan on Sunday, which resulted in several Azeri casualties.


In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said Pakistan extends its sincere condolences to the bereaved families.

Farooqui said the unresolved conflict of Nagorno-Karabakh poses a serious threat to regional peace and security with far-reaching consequences.
