BAKU, June 6. /TASS/. Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry on Monday reported 32 cases of ceasefire violations by Armenia over the past 24 hours.
The positions of Azerbaijan’s army came under fire from opposite positions located on Armenia’s territory and also near settlements and highland areas in Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent areas controlled by the Armenians, the ministry 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.
The participants of talks on Nagorno-Karabakh in Vienna on May 16 involving the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia and mediated by the foreign ministers from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group co-chair countries (Russia, the United States and France) agreed to observe ceasefire in the region in compliance with the 1994-1995 accords. The parties to the conflict also agreed to complete as soon as possible the work on the OSCE tool on investigating incidents on the contact line.
