Turkey has denied on Tuesday that it had fired an Armenian navy aircraft as alleged by the Armenian Ministry of Protection, and that there are fixed battles within the Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh space occupied by Armenia.
“The allegations that Turkey shot down an Armenian fighter,” Fakhreddin Altun, the media director on the Turkish presidency, mentioned.
“As a substitute of resorting to this ridiculous propaganda by Armenia, it should transfer previous the land it occupies,” he mentioned.
Additionally, the Azerbaijani Protection Ministry rejected Yerevan’s accusation and its spokesman instructed reporters “this data is one other lie of Armenian propaganda”.
Armenian Protection Ministry spokesman Shushan Stepanian has beforehand confirmed that the Armenian pilot has been killed as “the Armenian Su-25 has been shot down by a Turkish F-16 fighter plane … from Azerbaijan.”
