BAKU, April 6. /TASS/. Azerbaijan abides by the agreement on ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh but the situation along the front line remains tense, the country’s defense ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The Armed Forces of Azerbaijan strictly comply with the agreement between the sides on cessation of military operations on the contact line of forces from April 5," the statement reads.
The defense ministry said Armenia’s reports that Azerbaijan’s forces have violated the ceasefire agreement several times are "ungrounded."
In its turn, the ministry reported 115 ceasefire violations by Armenia’s forces. The shelling targeted Azerbaijan’s positions on the border between the two countries and in Nagorno-Karabakh.
"In line with operative situation, Azerbaijan’s Armed Forces carried out 120 fire attacks on the positions and dug positions of the enemy," the statement reads.
The situation along the line of contact in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone deteriorated dramatically overnight to April 2 when fierce clashes began. The parties to the conflict accused each other of violating the truce.
The Armenian and Azerbaijani defense ministries announced cessation of combat operations in Nagorno-Karabakh from 11:00 a.m. (0800GMT) Moscow time on April 5.
