The agreement on ceasefire was reached yesterday between the Defense Ministries of Armenia and Azerbaijan, Spokesman for the NKR President David Babayan told a press conference in Stepanakert today.
He added, however, that the current agreement on cessation of hostilities is very much like the negotiation process. “We have a distorted format of negotiations because of Azerbaijan’s non-constructive stance. Although Nagorno Karabakh is not a full-fledged party to the talks, we are a participant of it,” Babayan said.
“Minsk Group Co-Chairs periodically visit Stepanakert and hold discussions with the local authorities,” he said.
“Thus, the agreement on ceasefire was formally reached between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Karabakh is a party to it, as it is the implemented of the ceasefire,” Babayan concluded.
