Islamabad: The Foreign Office has denied allegations by Armenia that Pakistani troops were present in the border areas to help Azerbaijan.
In an interview with a Russian TV channel on October 15, the Armenian prime minister accused the Pakistani military of helping Azerbaijan in the Karabakh conflict, a Foreign Office spokesman said in a statement. Pakistan denies this baseless allegation.
He said that the Prime Minister of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev had also denied this, saying that the Azerbaijani army was fully capable of protecting its territory and did not need the help of any foreign army.
The Foreign Office spokesman said that it was unfortunate that the Armenian leadership was using irresponsible propaganda to cover up its illegal actions against Azerbaijan, which should be stopped.
He clarified that Pakistan would continue to provide diplomatic, moral and political support to Azerbaijan and would continue to support the right of the brotherly country to defend Azerbaijan against any aggression.
He added that UN Security Council resolutions and the withdrawal of Armenian troops from Azerbaijan were necessary for lasting peace and normalization of relations between the two sides.
