Baku. 5 March. REPORT.AZ/ Armenian vandalism in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan created a disastrous ecological situation, Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan
He noted that international law should play a key role in such cases.
"Forests, flora and fauna of Azerbaijan are destroyed, and water is polluted. As a result of deliberate arsons committed by Armenians, approximately 100,000 hectares of the forests of Azerbaijan were destroyed. The ecological situation of the Araz River leaves much to be desired. As a result of water pollution by Armenians, many fish species die out,” the minister noted.
Babayev stressed that Armenia also continues to plunder natural resources in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.
