The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan and the State Border Service said that the Armenian Armed Forces had invaded the country.
"On June 1, at around 20:00, the Armenian Armed Forces with about 40 servicemen intervened the territory of Azerbaijan in 400 meters in the direction of Armudlu village of the Kalbajar region of the Republic of Azerbaijan and took positions," reads the statement.
The agencies note that the Armenian military has returned to its original positions as a result of the measures taken. At the same time, Azerbaijan emphasizes that it has not used weapons.
The statement said that this incident serves to escalate the situation on the border.
"The intervention of the Armenian armed forces in the territory of Azerbaijan is another provocation, and Armenia bears full responsibility for this. The incident demonstrates once again that Armenia aims to aggravate the situation along the state border of the two countries, contrary to the calls on of the international community and the Azerbaijani side to resolve border issues through negotiations and dialogue," the statement notes.
The agencies note that Azerbaijan will strongly refuse any attempt to violate the state border.
"Armenia must act responsibly, respect the borders and territorial integrity of neighboring states and refrain from provocations that could aggravate the situation in the region," the statement said.
