Armenia is responsible for the escalation in the region, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said.

The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry made the statement in connection with the provocations committed by the Armenian side on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border recently, Trend reports referring to the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.

"As the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense stated, the Armenian Armed Forces fired at the positions located near Ashagi Buzgov settlement of Babak district of Azerbaijan’s Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic on the night from May 27 to May 28,” the statement said. “As a result, Azerbaijani soldier Elkhan Muradov was wounded.”
