“The Armenian side must not forget that state of the art missile systems of our army allow us to strike the Metsamor nuclear plant with precision, which could lead to a great catastrophe for Armenia,” said Vagif Dargahli, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry spokesman.
According to Azerbaijani news agencies, Dargahli responded to what he described as Armenian threats to attack a large reservoir in central Azerbaijan.
The Armenian Foreign Ministry condemned Dargahli’s remarks as a “manifestation of state terrorism” that "reflects Azerbaijan’s genocidal intentions.”
“With such statements, Azerbaijan’s leadership poses a threat to all peoples of the region, including its own people,” it said in a statement. ■
