Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan said that Yerevan has compelling evidence that Turkey has sent militants from Syria and Libya to Karabakh.

He continued: “This is confirmed by the intelligence data of the countries participating in the chairmanship of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the reports received from the conflict zone itself.”

Armenia and Azerbaijan have exchanged accusations about bringing in armed mercenaries from Syria and the Middle East countries, and the Armenian ambassador to Russia, Vardan Tagagnian, said that militants transported by Turkey from Syria are participating in hostilities in the Karabakh heights.
