The Embassy of Armenia in Georgia issued the following statement following the incident:
“Last night after midnight, anonymous people threw stones at Armenian trucks in the vicinity of the Kvemo Ponichala settlement of Georgia, broke the front and side windows of some of them and fled the scene of the incident.
Afterwards, escorted by patrol officers, the truck drivers reached the Georgian-Armenian border and crossed it.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia has launched a criminal case regarding this incident.
The Embassy of Armenia in Georgia is in constant touch with the state bodies of Georgia and is working actively to make sure the guilty are brought to justice within the scope of the law and to rule out the repetition of such incidents.”
One of the truckers made contact with #Yerevan, stating, “We were more than tense. Azerbaijanis are attacking and destroying our trucks in a foreign city, and we don’t even know if the Azerbaijanis are armed and why they’re provoking…Cargo transportation through Georgia is becoming very dangerous. Who will solve this issue? The economy is going to decline soon, but Armenian government officials led by Pashinyan are talking about communications with the enemy and want to transfer cargo to Russia through Azerbaijan. How? How is our security going to be guaranteed?”
This is the second time Armenian trucks have been attacked just in the past month, following the signing of the capitulation act.
