Defense Ministry of Armenia urges Baku to abandon the attempts to escalate tension on the line of contact of the NKR and Azerbaijani armed forces and take measures to stabilize the situation.
"The situation on the line of contact of the NKR and Azerbaijani armed forces is extremely tense these days as Azerbaijani militaries make continuous attempts to penetrate into the positions of the Armenian forces. They fire at the NKR Defense Army positions from large-caliber weapons, rocket launchers, mortar launchers and air defense guns. Fires at near border Armenian villages have been intensified. The death toll on both sides is growing day by day. The Defense Ministry of Armenia declares that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces act contrary to the peace negotiations within the OSCE MG, which is pregnant with resumption of large-scale military actions," the Defense Ministry says in a statement.
The Ministry warns Baku that in case of further sabotage attempts by Azerbaijani armed forces, the Armenian armed forces will have to take tougher measures to punish the senseless and illogic displays of rancor by the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry leadership.
