“Currently, the situation is intense, especially in the south area, we have no ceasefire regime. Armenia clearly stated about the commitment to the observation of the ceasefire regime in accordance with the statement; we intend to observe the truce; we are committed to these intentions. In other words, the ceasefire and humanitarian actions, the beginning of the negotiations in the unchanged format of co-chairing of the OSCE Minsk Group,” the PM noted.
He reminded that after the public urge of President of Russia Vladimir Putin, the statement was adopted of the foreign ministers of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia about the ceasefire. However, Azerbaijan does not observe the truce in Karabakh.
According to Pashinyan, the ceasefire regime had to come into force on October 10 at 12:00 p.m. At 12:05 p.m., Azerbaijan started the attack in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, assuming the attempt to seize Hadrut city. Currently, the combat actions take place near Hadrut and the Artsakh Defence Army of Nagorno-Karabakh tries to displace the subversive groups that tried to seize Hadrut.
On October 10, Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan reached an agreement on a temporary ceasefire in the conflict in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. The deal was made during consultations in Moscow, with the mediation of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
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.
