“Prior to the International Court of Justice, Armenia had raised the issue of the Military Trophies Park before other international organizations,” said Elnur Mammadov, Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan at a press briefing on the decision of the International Court of Justice on temporary measures, APA reports.
Deputy FM noted that this was not a new issue for Azerbaijan: “Armenia side applied to various countries in this regard. In some cases, the support of pro-Armenian forces to Armenia's position was reflected. However, there is no question of any ethnic hatred against the Armenian people. This park is connected with history. Weapons and samples used against Azerbaijan in the territories occupied for 30 years, in the Patriotic War, are kept in this park. Evidence of Armenia's use of ballistic missiles is also displayed in the park.”
