Yerevan expects Russia to ensure Azerbaijan's withdrawal from Karabakh

Yerevan expects the Russian peacekeeping force to undertake measures to ensure the immediate withdrawal of Azerbaijani troops that have invaded Nagorno-Karabakh and captured an Armenian village, the Armenian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday, March 25.

On Thursday, Azerbaijan used drones to launch an offensive against Nagorno-Karabakh, capturing a village and positions nearby and injuring one Armenian soldier. It was reported on Friday, however, that lengthy negotiations of the Russian peacekeeping troops have not yielded significant results, and the Azeris have not returned to the starting positions.

"The infiltrated units of the Azerbaijani armed forces attacked the bases of the Defense Army last night. The situation in Nagorno-Karabakh remains tense," the statement said.

The Foreign Ministry insisted that the Azerbaijani armed forces must return to the starting position of March 23.
