The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has published the names of the names of its soldiers killed in no man’s zone as a result of an act of sabotage undertaken by the Azerbaijani forces on February 25.
Baku claims that the Karabakh side hindered the recovery of the bodies, bringing forth new requirements.
The Defense Ministry of the Artsakh Republic declares that according to an agreement reached between the parties with the mediation of the Special Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, the recovery of bodies was to be organized on February 26 with the participation of ICRC representatives.
Artsakh says Azerbaijan is to blame for the failure to recover the bodies. “Evacuation of bodies did not take place because the Azeri side violated agreements,” the Ministry said in a statement.
