PanARMENIAN.Net - Azeri President Ilham Aliyev's bellicose statements
at a Baku military parade were, above all, meant for internal use,
Defense Minister said.

As Seyran Ohanyan noted during an air parade to mark the 21st
anniversary of Armenia's sky force, "Baku's unilateral approach to
Karabakh settlement negotiations forced Armenia to form a sky force.

Azerbaijan demands compromise, but we cannot find ourselves in the
same situation twice. We had already repelled an attack to defend
Artsakh people and out border regions. Armenia supports peaceful
settlement of the conflict, without a compromise."

"There's always a possibility for a new war in Karabakh, though a
low one. So we're getting ready every day, by increasing the Armenian
army's military skills," Ohanyan said.
