Statement of the Foreign Ministry of Armenia on the violation of humanitarian truce agreed with Azerbaijan on October 17

18 October, 2020

The Defense Army of the Republic of Artsakh stated that the Azerbaijani armed forces once again grossly violated the new humanitarian truce agreed, and on 18 October, at 07:20, after an active artillery fire, launched an attack in the southern direction in order to occupy favorable positions.

This is the second time that Azerbaijan violates the ceasefire agreement achieved through the personal mediation of the leader of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair country thus demonstrating to the international community its treacherous nature, which we have been dealing with for decades.

Armenia will continue to undertake all necessary measures to impose peace on Azerbaijan and establish a ceasefire regime which will entail  precise and effective mechanisms for maintaining and verifying it on the ground.
