Both Azerbaijan and Armenia have accused each other of violating the ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. The allegations came to light just minutes after the Russian-Broke ceasefire went into effect on Saturday (10 October). British news agency Reuters gave this information.
The old conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan on the Nagorno-Karbakh region resumed on 26 September (Sunday). More than 300 people have died in clashes in the last few days. The New York Times quoted a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman on Friday (9 October) as saying that the two sides had agreed to a cease-fire in Moscow in response to Russia’s offer. Following the talks, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made a formal declaration of a cease-fire between Azerbaijan and Armenia shortly before 6 am Bangladesh time on Saturday. Russia’s foreign minister said that after agreeing for a cease-fire, Armenia and Azerbaijan would now begin the next “fruitful” negotiations.
Although the ceasefire came into effect on Saturday (October 10) afternoon, the two sides accused each other of violating within minutes. Both countries have denied the allegations.
According to the Armenian Ministry of Defense, Azerbaijan has fired shells in a colony of the country. Armenian forces in Karbak claimed that Azeri had launched a new offensive within five minutes of the ceasefire.
Azerbaijan, on the other hand, claims that the enemy of Karabakh fired shells in Asseri region. In a statement, Ezri’s President Ilham Aliyev said that the warring parties were now trying to reach a political solution. He indicated in a statement that the ceasefire had not yet been fully implemented.
