Deputy FM: Azerbaijan was obliged to take local limited counter terrorism measures

"We were concerned about the growing escalation caused by the intransigent position of the Armenian side. Regretfully, this escalation had to result in local limited counter-terrorism measures, which the Azerbaijan side was obliged to take,” said Azerbaijan’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Fariz Rzayev as he informed the media about the latest situation in the region at a briefing for diplomatic corps accredited in Azerbaijan at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
