Pakistan Armed Forces Fully Behind Azerbaijan Over Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict – Army Chief

Pakistan Army chief said on Friday that his forces fully support Azerbaijan’s position in the Nagorno-Karabakh.

Azerbaijan’s Ambassador to Pakistan Ali Alizada met with Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen. Nadeem Raza at the Joint Staff headquarters in the garrison city of Rawalpindi to discuss matters of bilateral interest and regional security, according to a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) — the Pakistan army’s media wing.

The military forces chief reaffirmed the brotherly relationship between the two countries and said it is built on strong foundations.

“CJCSC [Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee] said that Pakistan Armed Forces fully support Azerbaijan’s position on Nagorno-Karabakh, which is in line with the several unanimously adopted United Nations Security Council resolutions,” according to ISPR.

The ambassador thanked Raza for Pakistan’s support for the just cause of Azerbaijan.

“Pleased to call on General Nadeem Raza, the Chairman JCSC of Pakistan & discuss the ways of further strengthening bilateral #military relations between our brotherly countries,” he tweeted following the meeting.

Pakistan, Azerbaijan and Turkey Flags

Last week, Pakistani Foreign Ministry refuted Indian media reports that Pakistan is fighting alongside Azerbaijani forces against Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh and termed the reports “irresponsible, speculative, and baseless.”

The ministry also said it supports Azerbaijan’s position on Nagorno-Karabakh, which is in line with the several unanimously adopted UN Security Council resolutions.

Relations between the two former Soviet republics have been tense since 1991 when the Armenian military occupied Upper Karabakh, an internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan.
