Yerevan /Mediamax/. Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated today that "we have to state that the infiltration of the Azerbaijani units into the area of responsibility of the Russian peacekeeping contingent in Nagorno-Karabakh continues.”
The Armenian ministry said earlier the Russian Ministry of Defense had stated that the Azerbaijani side was urged to withdraw the troops. On March 27 the Russian Ministry of Defense issued a statement saying that the Azerbaijani side has withdrawn its units from Parukh village of Nagorno Karabakh.
“We expect that the Russian peacekeeping contingent in Nagorno Karabakh will take concrete measures to stop the infiltration of Azerbaijani troops into the area of responsibility of the peacekeepers and to withdraw the Azerbaijani armed forces. We consider it important to carry out proper investigation of the actions of the peacekeeping contingent during the whole period of the infiltration of the Azerbaijani units and to receive answers to a number of questions,” Armenian ministry said in a statement.
The ministry is also “pleased to note that the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs have given a clear assessment of the recent escalation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, stating that it is a consequence of the Azerbaijani troop movement.”
