German Chancellor Angela Merkel supported the statement of Presidents Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron regarding the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. This was reported by the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers of Germany.
Merkel expressed concern about the hostilities and the increase in the number of victims. In addition, she stressed that the parties to the conflict must immediately cease hostilities and resume negotiations.
"She supported in all respects the statement of the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group (Russia, the United States and France) on October 1," the statement says.
She spoke in favor of the parties agreeing on a humanitarian pause for the removal of the bodies of the dead soldiers from the combat zone.
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.
