Armenia and Azerbaijan agree on ceasefire

Yerevan, Sep 15 (Prensa Latina) Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed on a ceasefire, Armen Grigoryan, secretary of Armenia's Security Council, said in Yerevan on Thursday.

Grigoryan stated that after two days of armed clashes and human losses in both countries, the hostilities ended through international aid.

The Armenian Ministry of Defense reported that immediately after September 13 at midnight, Azerbaijani units opened fire on the towns of Goris, Sotk, and Yermuk with artillery and large caliber and light weapons.

The Armenian Security Council held an emergency meeting, at which it decided to request Russia’s help to invoke the provisions of the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation, and Mutual Assistance.

For his part, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stressed that his country’s Armed Forces took responsive measures and held the Armenian military and political leadership responsible for what happened.

Armenia and Azerbaijan have clashed on multiple occasions since the demise of the Soviet Union, when Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian settlementn in Azerbaijan, unilaterally decided to declare its independence.
