YEREVAN, April 22. /TASS/. The recent events in Nagorno-Karabakh have pushed the negotiations on the disputed territory off the track, Armenian Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandyan said at talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Friday.

"A serious blow to security and stability was dealt. But one should think about how to overcome these consequences, although some things are irreparable - the deaths," Nalbandyan said.

"These events have pushed the negotiating process backwards," he said.

The situation along the contact line of conflicting sides in Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed territory between Armenia and Azerbaijan, deteriorated dramatically overnight to April 2 when fierce clashes began. The parties to the conflict accused each other of violating the truce. At a meeting of chiefs of General Staff of Armenia and Azerbaijan in Moscow an agreement was reached on the ceasefire from noon local time (0800GMT) on April 5. Since then, the sides have reported ceasefire violations along the contact line.
