According to the statement, the group, belonging to the reconnaissance and sabotage of the Armed Forces of Armenia was arrested on the way to the Azerbaijani settlement of Yukhari Ayrim, in the Kelbajar region, on the common border.

A concentration of several units of the Armed Forces of Armenia, including tanks, was observed near the border this Thursday morning, the statement said.

It indicated that ‘as a result of the measures taken, the movement was repressed. Our units are currently monitoring the operational situation at the site.’

The Armenian Defense Ministry stated on Tuesday that an Armenian soldier died as a result of a skirmish on the border with Azerbaijan, in the Gegharkunik region; however, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan for its part denied the accusation and pointed out that, according to the information available, the death of the soldier was caused by an accident.

Baku denounced yesterday that seven trucks with Armenian Armed Forces personnel tried to approach the border, and were stopped ‘as a result of preventive measures taken’ without the use of weapons, the Azerbaijani authorities indicated.

The situation in the Gegharkunik and Syunik regions, on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, has remained tense since May 12th, when Yerevan reported on the attempt by the armed forces of Azerbaijan to ‘adjust the border.’
