Azerbaijan threatens Armenia with nuclear terrorism

17:21, 16 July, 2020

YEREVAN, JULY 16, ARMENPRESS. Azerbaijan’s military is threatening Armenia with international nuclear crime - to deliver missile strikes at the Metsamor Nuclear Power Plant.

“The Armenian side should not forget that the latest missile systems, which are in the arsenal of the Azerbaijani army, can hit the Metsamor NPP with a great accuracy, which will lead to a great disaster for Armenia”, the Azerbaijani defense ministry spokesperson told reporters at a press conference.

During the current tense situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border launched since July 12, Armenia has never announced hitting the civilian infrastructures, including that Mingachevir water reservoir. Moreover, the Armenian side has never targeted the civilian objects.

It’s not the first time Azerbaijan is making such a terroristic statement. In 2018 Azerbaijan’s defense ministry has made such a threatening statement, noting that the Azerbaijani arsenal has the latest weapons of destructive power which can eliminate all important Armenian military objects and strategic communication lines in a short period of time.

In 1987 the Geneva Conference on Terrorism adopted The Geneva Declaration on Terrorism, which recorded that state terrorism manifests itself in “the armed attack by the military forces of a state on targets that put at risk the civilian population residing in another state”.

Statement by the MFA of Armenia

16 July 2020

Azerbaijan threatened to launch missile attacks on Armenia’s nuclear plant amid continuing deadly clashes on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.

This is the Statement by the MFA of Armenia on threats of the Ministry of Defence of Azerbaijan to launch a missile strike at the Armenian Metsamor Nuclear Power Plant

"The threats voiced by the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan to launch missile attacks at the Armenian Metsamor Nuclear Power Plant indicate the level of desperation and the crisis of mind of the political-military leadership of Azerbaijan.
The actions threatened by the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan are a flagrant violation of the international humanitarian law in general and the First Additional Protocol to Geneva Conventions in particular.

Such threats are an explicit demonstration of state terrorism and genocidal intent of Azerbaijan. Moreover, with such statements, the leadership of Azerbaijan acts as a menace to all the peoples of the region, including its own people.
We strongly condemn the nuclear threats voiced by Azerbaijan, which demonstrate the absolute absence of responsibility and sound judgement from this particular member of the international community. Azerbaijan must publicly denounce such threats at once".

Please inform international organizations and other relevant actors about this.
It’s also important to issue letters and statements on the international level as soon as possible. Azerbaijan’s authorities are basically threatening to carry out a genocide!
