Aliyev accused Armenia of using mercenaries from France and the United States

At a meeting with Russian Defense Minister, Army General Sergei Shoigu, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that Baku has photos and video documents confirming the use of “mercenaries” in Yerevan, including from France and the United States.

The delegation headed by Shoigu arrived in Baku on Saturday.

“Armenia actively used foreign mercenaries. We have numerous photo and video documents and passports of foreign citizens, including those from France, the USA, Lebanon, Canada, Georgia, and other countries. Some of these citizens are of Armenian origin, while others are unknown. But this does not change the essence of the issue, because the use of foreign mercenaries by Armenia is, of course, unacceptable,” Aliyev’s press service quoted him as saying.

On November 10, the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia, Vladimir Putin, Ilham Aliyev, and Nikol Pashinyan, signed a joint statement on the complete cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. According to the statement, Armenia and Azerbaijan stop at the occupied positions. Some districts come under Baku’s control, the parties exchange prisoners, and Russian peacekeepers are stationed along the contact line and the Lachin corridor connecting Karabakh with Armenia.
