Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev held discussions Tuesday with European Council President Charles Michel on the latest tensions on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border.
Michel expressed his concern over recent events on the border in the telephone call, according to a statement from the Azerbaijani presidency.
Noting that there were injuries on the Azerbaijani side, he said the necessary response was given to Armenia’s provocation.
Aliyev said all responsibility for the current tensions rested with the Yerevan administration.
During the conversation, the pair exchanged views on the prospects of relations between Azerbaijan and the European Union.
Earlier, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said the Armenian armed forces once again opened fire on Azerbaijani army positions on the border.
