Nikol Pashinyan, the Prime Minister of Armenia, claimed his country was ready for concessions in the Nagorno-Karabakh. However, the principal condition is that Azerbaijan acts the same way. Pashinyan said so in a commentary for AFP, as quoted by RBC agency.

"Conflicts should be solved based on mutual concessions. Nagorno-Karabakh is ready for these, Armenia will go for tit-for-tat concessions, if Azerbaijan is ready", Pashinyan said.

On September 27, the Azerbaijani side fired at settlements, as well as military units in Karabakh. Then the motorized rifle and tank subdivisions of the Azerbaijani army went on the offensive in the northern, southern, and southeastern directions. The Armenian government has declared martial law in the country.

On the same day, the Republic of Armenia applied to the European Court of Human Rights with a request to apply an interim measure in accordance with Rule 39 of the Rules of the Court in order to stop military attacks on civilian settlements along the line of contact between the armed forces of Armenia and Artsakh.

On September 30, it was reported that the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), in response to a request from Armenia, approved measures by which it ordered Azerbaijan and Armenia to refrain from hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh.
