The military-political leadership of Armenia maintains efforts to reach the settlement of the Karabakh conflict through peaceful means, Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan said at a meeting with the presidency of the Armenian National Academy of Sciences.

The Minister added, however, that the rival refuses to work constructively and continues to violate the ceasefire agreement.

“The rival is consistently aggravating the situation to solve certain domestic problems on one hand, and to exert pressure on the Armenian side on the international arena in order to grab unilateral concessions,” Minister Ohanyan said.

“We’re afraid of war, but we’re not afraid of fighting, i.e. we are ready to protect Armenia and Artsakh – a sacred part of our country. The Armenian Ministry of Defense is preparing for war every day,” the Defense Minister said.

Seyran Ohanyan added that the current military-political conditions and the international development do not indicate to the possibility of large-scale military actions or war, since everything is being done to prevent all those intentions and goals through creation of international guarantees.
