April 12, 2011 PanARMENIAN.Net – Installation works are currently in progress at Stepanakert airport, the head of NKR Civil Aviation Department stated.
As David Atbashyan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, special attention is given to the concrete runway. “We’re taking our time to provide quality work. I believe the opening will take place in the middle of summer,” Atbashyan said.
Director of the State Civil Aviation Administration of Azerbaijan Arif Mammadov announced Azerbaijan would shoot down the aircraft that would be landing at the Stepanakert airport. The Azeri side has already managed to complain to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
Azeri threats to shoot down planes bound for Stepanakert will not frighten Karabakh, according to the head of the central information department at the office of the Artsakh President. “The threats are a proof that medieval psychology is prevalent in Azerbaijan. Those who issue them do not simply lack in self-possession, but openly support Nazi values,” David Babayan stressed.
