Ilham Aliyev, Azerbaijani President, in an interview with al-Arabiya TV channel demanded an apology from Paris for the words of the French President Emmanuel Macron about the transfer of Syrian militants to Baku to conduct military operations in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“There are no mercenaries, we have an army consisting of 100 thousand fighters. I demand that France apologize and show responsibility,” RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

Macron earlier announced that there was a transfer of jihadist groups from Syria to Karabakh. Later, he clarified that more than 300 Syrian Islamist militants, who were taken out of the Aleppo region, were later transferred via Turkish Gaziantep to the conflict zone in Nagorno-Karabakh (to participate in military operations on the side of Azerbaijan). The French leader called this information a “confirmed fact.”

In addition, the Russian foreign Ministry expressed deep concern about the transfer of Syrian and Libyan fighters to the conflict zone in Nagorno-Karabakh in order to directly participate in the fighting.

The conflict in Karabakh escalated on September 27. Azerbaijan and Armenia reported losses on both sides, including among civilians.

Russian, US and French presidents Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron have called for an immediate end to the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh.
