The Foreign Office of Pakistan has refuted the reports about the Pakistani army fighting alongside Azerbaijani forces against Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh.

According to the details, Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said such reports are irresponsible.  He said Pakistan is deeply concerned about the deteriorating security situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The Spokesperson said the intensive shelling by Armenian forces on civilian populations of Azerbaijan is reprehensible and most unfortunate. This could compromise the peace and security of the entire region.

He said Armenia must stop its military action to avoid further escalation. The Spokesperson said Pakistan supports Azerbaijan’s position on Nagorno-Karabakh, which is in line with the several unanimously adopted United Nations Security Council resolutions.

It should be noted that dozens of people have been reported killed and hundreds wounded in fighting that has renewed concern about stability in the South Caucasus.

Nagorno-Karabakh broke away from Azerbaijan in a 1991-94 war that killed 30,000 people but is not recognized internationally as an independent republic.
