The Azerbaijani armed forces fully control the situation on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border and on the frontline, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry Vagif Dergahli told Trend on August 2.

"There is no retreat from the Azerbaijani side," he added.

"Despite the losses, Azerbaijani soldiers and officers prevented the enemy's attack on various fronts," he said.

"The enemy also suffered losses," he added. "Armenia hid its losses. At present, Azerbaijani Air Forces control the situation along the frontline. The situation is also controlled by Azerbaiajni Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov. He gave the relevant instructions resulting in suppressing the enemy's attacks. In some cases our servicemen suppressed the mortar positions by machine-guns. A wounded ensign continued fighting and destroyed several armed Armenian soldiers. Armenians suffered many more losses, although we do not have accurate statistics."

"After the first aid was rendered, wounded Azerbaijani servicemen were transported to Baku's main hospital of the armed forces," he added. "The specialized medical care will be rendered to them."

Some 12 Azerbaijani servicemen and some were wounded as a result of the Armenian reconnaissance and sabotage groups' attacks on the positions of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces for the last four days.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the U.S. are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
