Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan met with the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs Igor Popov, James Warlick and Pierre Andrieu, and the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk.

The meeting was dedicated to the recent Azerbaijani aggression against the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.

Minister Ohanyan referred to the military actions at the line of contact between the armed forces of Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan and the current situation.

Seyran Ohanyan drew the attention of the Co-Chairs to the peculiarities of Azerbaijan’s obvious aggression, including the war crimes against Armenian servicemen and civilians, as well as other violations of provisions of the law of armed conflict.

The Defense Minister noted that the Azeri military aggression was rebuffed and the further actions were prevented thanks to the heroic and skilled actions of the NKR Defense Army.

The Minister said Armenia is still ready to continue negotiations on the peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict.

The Armenian Minister stressed the need of reinforcing any ceasefire with a legally binding agreement as a prerequisite for easing the military confrontation in the conflict zone.
