Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan has provided details about Azerbaijan's incursion into Nagorno-Karabakh to the Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Stanislav Zas.

Azerbaijan has broken into Nagorno-Karabakh, and the incursion has left three Armenian soldiers dead and at least 14 others injured. On March 24, Azerbaijan stormed into the zone of the responsibility of the Russian peacekeepers stationed in the area and is refusing to completely withdraw its forces from strategic heights.

During the meeting, the Armenian foreign policy chief stressed the need for continued efforts to improve the organization's crisis response mechanisms. Zas, meanwhile, presented the security situation in the CSTO zone and the current challenges, and informed Mirzoyan about the process of agreeing on the documents negotiated within the CSTO.
