BAKU, August 03, 10:42 /ITAR-TASS/. Azerbaijan blamed Armenia for a deteriorating situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict area, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said in a statement made public on Sunday.
In the last few days Armenian military forces “violating the ceasefire regime in different directions of Armenian-Azerbaijani state border and the line of contact attacked Azerbaijani army positions several times,” the ministry said. “These Armenian provocative acts have mounted tension sharply along the frontline and have caused major casualties. The full brunt of responsibility for the current dangerous situation is laid on Yerevan state authorities which gave instructions to take such provocative steps,” the ministry added.
For his part, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian blamed Azerbaijan Saturday for an aggravating situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone. Baku “neglects appeals from the states which co-chair the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group to refrain from provocative actions and deterioration of the situation.” “Rejecting international community’s initiatives to create mechanisms for investigating incidents Azerbaijan assumes responsibility for breaking the ceasefire,” Nalbandian affirmed.
Tension has been growing sharply in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict area in the last few days.
Twelve Azerbaijani army servicemen have been killed and several more wounded as a result of conflict escalation in the last few days, Azerbaijani Defence Ministry said.
Meanwhile, a 25-year-old Armenian serviceman was killed in a shootout, spokesman for the Armenian defence minister Artsrun Oganesian said.
