Aliyev said that the withdrawal of Armenian armed forces from the Naka region is the only condition for Azerbaijan, and only when this condition is met will Azerbaijan cease fire. At the same time, Aliyev said that Azerbaijan can complete its combat tasks independently without the help of foreign military forces. On the same day, the Ministry of defense of Azerbaijan announced that it would continue to launch an offensive in the Naka area. In the northern part of Karabakh, the Afghan army surrounded a part of the Armenian armed forces, and planned to completely annihilate the second army troops, and at the same time destroy the command post of the 41st independent regiment of the 18th Armenian motorized division. The Ministry of defence of Azerbaijan accused Armenian forces of using dot-u tactical missiles in the conflict. The Armenian military denied this.
The statement of the Armenian Ministry of defense pointed out that the information spread by the Azerbaijani media about the use of the dot-u missile by the Armenian side is not in line with the reality. If the Azerbaijani side continues to disseminate similar information, it will give a stern response. According to the Armenian Ministry of defense statistics, the countrys army has killed more than 130 Azerbaijani soldiers, destroyed 29 tanks and armored vehicles and 11 UAVs in the conflict. Naka region is located in the southwest of Azerbaijan, covering an area of 4400 square kilometers. It was an autonomous prefecture of Azerbaijan during the Soviet period, and most of its residents were Armenian. In 1988, Naka demanded to be integrated into Armenian, which led to the outbreak of armed conflict between the ethnic groups in the state. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, a war broke out between Azerbaijani and Armenian in order to fight for Naka, and Armenian controlled part of the territory formerly belonging to Azerbaijan around Naka. A new round of armed conflict broke out between the two countries since the 27th of this month. (head office reporter Gu Xin)
