Azerbaijan’s use of force torpedoes security in region, says Mirzoyan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan met with President of the International Crisis Group Comfort Ero in New York on Wednesday, September 21.

In the course of the meeting, a number of issues on regional and international security were discussed. Ararat Mirzoyan briefed upon the position of the Armenian side regarding the normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan and the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Minister Mirzoyan also drew the interlocutor's attention to the recent aggression unleashed by the Azerbaijani armed forces against the sovereign territory of Armenia. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia noted that Azerbaijan attempts to achieve its maximalist demands and aspirations by using force and threatening to use force, which torpedoes the stability and security of the region. The importance of targeted and impartial response by international organizations was emphasized.

The latest round of fighting began in the wee hours of September 13, when the Azerbaijani military attacked Armenian posts and shelled Armenian settlements both on the border and deep behind the frontline. At least 207 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said on Monday.
