PanARMENIAN.Net – The Armenian Ministry of Defense has urged the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs to directly address the side of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict that actually avoids establishing ceasefire.
In a statement Friday, October 16, the Defense Ministry reaffirmed that the units of the Armed Forces of Armenia and the Artsakh Defense Army are ready to observe the terms of the humanitarian ceasefire signed in Moscow on October 10, as well as to apply the agreed ceasefire monitoring arrangements.
“In this regard, we urge the international community, in particular the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, to address directly in their statements and appeals to the side of the conflict, which by various means avoids establishing ceasefire and the necessary verification mechanisms for the maintenance of the ceasefire regime.”
Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
