Pashinyan admits there is "some tension" in Karabakh

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has said there is "some tension" in the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh).

Pashinyan told a government meeting on Thursday, March 10 that the tension is highlighted amid the malfunction of the pipeline supplying natural gas from Armenia to Artsakh.

"Let's not make assessments at the moment," said the Prime Minister, adding that his government will try to focus on solving the problems. According to him, the Armenian and Artsakh authorities and international organizations are working to stabilize the situation.

Pashinyan's remarks came amid Azerbaijan's ceasefire violations in Nagorno-Karabakh, which left one civilian injured on Thursday. According to Armenian Human Rights Defender Kristinne Grigoryan, Baku has also accumulated tanks near the village of Khramort, after intimidating the residents for weeks on end.
