The Defense Ministry made known its consent with the calls for stopping exchanges of gunfire and called the international community’s attention to the importance of coordination and concrete steps for establishing true between the Azerbaijani and Karabakh forces, on top of political statements.
These practical steps might include the designing of technical specifications for the truce, disengagement of the conflicting forces, and implementation of the ceasefire patterns, the ministry said.
