The cause of every soldier’s death is investigated, and it becomes clear that the soldier was killed on the battlefield or died in a non-combat condition, Azerbaijani Defense Minister, Colonel General Zakir Hasanov said on Wednesday, APA reports.


Hasanov urged media representatives not to hurry and to be sensitive when reporting the deaths of soldiers.


"Let's wait for the results of the investigation. We never hide soldier deaths. Reporting in haste simply must not be allowed,” the minister added.
