The NKR Defence Army is Efficient and is Well Experienced
31.10 .09

The Minister of Defence of Azerbaijan S. Abiev has lately come up with
another ridiculous announcement. With regard to this the correspondent
of the ArmAr news agency has asked the RA Minister of Defence Seyran
Ohanyan for a clarification.

- Mr. Minister, by interpreting the RA President's visit to the
frontier region and to Nagorno Kharabakh Republic, the Minister of
Defence of Azerbaijan S. Abiev has announced that Serzh Sargsyan has
no right to visit the NKR and that it is possible for that visit to be
the last one.

- We understand Abiev's strivings to see the desired as a reality. I
advise him to interpret his country's president's visits. As for the
RA President's visit to the NKR, he may visit there at anytime. That's
the way it was, and that's how it will be.

- Concerning the latest manoeuvres of the NKR Defence Army, Abiev has
said that they `know everything and that the enemy cannot become
active'. At the same time he has added, that the Azerbaijani armed
forces are capable of freeing the so called `captive areas'.

- It is not the first time that the Azerbaijani military and political
leaders come up with such unserious announcements. The manoeuvres held
in the NKR have always been painfully accepted by them. Today the
Defence Army is efficient and is well experienced. It has the modern
armament and is ready to resist any assault. As for the announcements
regarding the high fighting trim of the Azerbaijani army, I would not
like to interpret them. I can only say that the efficiency of an army
is not measured by idle announcements. I am sure that the Azerbaijani
Minister of Defency is well aware of this.
