The situation at the border is tense, but stable with no improvement trends in sight, Artsakh Defense Minister, Lieutenant General Levon Mnatsakanyan told reporters today.
“There is some decrease in the number of ceasefire violations, but tensions escalate from time to time,” he said.
The Minister said, however, that tensions have considerably eased as compared to the situation that was established after the April war.
Levon Mnatsakanyan noted that “the infringement attempts on the part of the rival have been excluded,” with the last such action reported in February.
The Defense Minister said the cases of firing from weapons of different calibers have also decreased. He believes retaliatory measures played a role here. “We tried to hit back so that the damage is greater than the one they cause,” the Commander-in-Chief said.
