The Caucasus could become another sort of what's going on in Syria, unless the international community interferes with the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh. Armen Sarkisyan, the Armenian President, said so in an interview with CNBC.

"Imagine that the Caucasus becomes another Syria", he said, explaining that the absence of international support could become a huge problem for the Caucasus.

The head of the Armenian state also commented on Turkey's actions in support of Azerbaijan. According to him, Ankara's current actions cause problems in the Mediterranean Sea, Greece, Libya, and Iraq.

On September 27, the Azerbaijani side fired at settlements and military units in Nagorno-Karabakh, inhabited and ruled by ethnic Armenians. Then, the motorized rifle and tank units 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 Court in order to stop military attacks on civilian settlements along the line of contact of the Armed Forces of Armenia and Artsakh, to stop selective attacks and attacks on the civilian population, civil objects and settlements.
