Bruno Tertrais visiting Aghdam: A sabotage of sacred places that should never have happened
"There are three things that shocked me here in Aghdam. The first is complete silence. There is a contrast between violence in the fighting and almost complete silence, which is very impressive," Bruno Tertrais, Deputy Director of Fondation Pour la Recherche Stratégique, told a News.Az correspondent during a visit to Aghdam.
"The second reminds me of the battlefields of the WWI in Europe, particularly in France, like 20-30 years after the WWI. The third is the sabotage of sacred places, which, of course, should never have happened during wars and is prohibited by international conventions," he said.
