The new shelling of Stepanakert is a disrespectful attitude towards the results of the talks in Moscow. This unsubstantiated aggression against peace and the civilian population must be assessed politically by the international community, first of all, the Russian Federation, the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs, which have made great efforts to establish a ceasefire. All this proves that one of the best solutions to the Artsakh issue can be the recognition of Artsakh's independence by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairing countries.

The ceasefire agreement reached in Moscow on October 9 must be respected and implemented. Today, after 12:00, Azerbaijan continued its attack on Nagorno Karabakh, violating its obligations.

"This is has been a very difficult time for Armenia and Artsakh. I’m here today to lend my voice to ensure people on the ground receive food, shelter and medical care. The Armenian fund is working directly with those that have been impacted by this crisis to provide these essential resources. It’s especially important to me as a mother to think of the children. The fear and hardship that comes with conflict should not have to be experienced. My thoughts and prayers are with those children and their families and the very brave men and women. Join me in supporting the fund today, whether its by spreading awareness on social media or donating just $1, no effort made is too small.

It must become a global movement, which unites these individuals, peoples, organizations. [Nikol Pashinyan]

Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Artsakh on the agreement on humanitarian ceasefire
We note the importance of the ceasefire agreement reached under the mediation of the Russian Federation from 10 October 2020 12:00 p.m. for humanitarian purposes for exchange through mediation and in accordance with the criteria of the International Committee of the Red Cross, prisoners of war and bodies of the dead.
The agreements reached in Moscow are a practical step towards ending armed aggression unleashed by Azerbaijan and Turkey in alliance with international terrorists against the Republic of Artsakh. The humanitarian truce should be strictly respected by Azerbaijan and lay a solid foundation for the full restoration of the ceasefire and hostilities agreements of 12 May 1994 and the ceasefire of 6 February 1995
We believe it is important that the joint statement following the negotiations in Moscow shows the exceptional role of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair in the implementation of mediation activities on the settlement of the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict.
Once again, we note that two aggressions unleashed by Azerbaijan during 4 years demonstrate the urgent need for the implementation of a mechanism that excludes the possibility of reopening of hostilities. Once again we reaffirm the position of official Stepanakert that only the international recognition of the independence of the Republic of Artsakh guarantees peace and security in the region and demonstrates the unacceptability of the international community to use force as a mean for resolution of conflicts.

The statements of the Azerbaijani leadership that the Armenian armed forces allegedly tried to attack Hadrut and Jabrayil, fired at an ambulance with a white flag, collecting corpses in the territory under the control of Azerbaijan, are unfounded, aimed at blaming the violation of humanitarian ceasefire to the Armenian side.
A joint statement made at the level of foreign ministers on October 10 clearly states that the exchange of bodies and prisoners of war between Artsakh and Azerbaijan should be mediated by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in accordance with its criteria, which is currently not happening for ongoing hostilities.
We regard the accusations of the Azerbaijani side as a primitive provocation and draw the attention of interested parties to this fact. [MoD spokesperson]
[11.10.20 21:12]
My call and demand is for the international community to fulfill its responsibility, not to be limited by our status, to provide as much support as possible from humanitarian, political and economic points of view.
I urge the countries of the international community that have sold and are selling weapons to Azerbaijan to see that most of these weapons are used deliberately and indiscriminately against the civilian population.
Therefore, these countries are also responsible for the war crimes that take place.
[Artak Beglaryan, Ombudsman of the Republic of Artsakh] | NKR InfoCenter |
[11.10.20 21:21]
We have clear evidence of the use of Israeli, Russian, Belarusian, Turkish and Ukrainian weapons. Some spare parts for these weapons were produced in other countries. Therefore, at the second level, those states also bear responsibility.
