MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia urges Armenia and Azerbaijan to take additional measures to stabilize the situation in the mostly Armenian populated Azerbaijani enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh.
“We are concerned about the worsening of the situation in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. There have been casualties among the military in the incidents that have become more frequent in the recent days in which the ceasefire has been violated on the border and the line of contact,” a commentary of the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday. “There have been reports about wounded among the civilian population,” it added.
In case the situation keeps worsening, “negative aftermaths are inevitable for the process of the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement,” the commentary said. “The implementation of the agreements reached at the Azerbaijani-Armenian summit in Vienna on November 19, 2013 may be seriously complicated,” it said.
Russia urges the sides in the conflict “to take additional measures aimed at stabilization of the situation, including the use of mechanisms envisaged in the ceasefire consolidation agreement of February 4, 1995,” it said.
