PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan continues violations of the 1994-1995 trilateral ceasefire agreements and threatens to solve the Nagorno Karabakh issue by force, Armenian foreign minister Edward Nalbandian told OSCE envoys on Thursday, February 16.

Nalbandian was meeting with the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs Igor Popov, Steacute;phane Visconti and Richard Hoagland, as well as Ambassador Andrzej Kasprzyk, the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Munich.

Nalbandian said that "in defiance of commitments and numerous demands of Minsk Group co-chairing countries, Azerbaijan continues ceasefire violations."

The sides stressed the necessity of implementation of agreements reached at Vienna and Saint-Petersbourg summits, aimed at creation of conditions for pushing the Karabakh peace process forward.

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and Azeri leader Ilham Aliyev met on June 20 in Saint Petersburg to address the conflict, with Russian President Vladimir Putin mediating the talks. The Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents confirmed their commitment to the implementation of agreements reached at a Vienna-hosted meeting on May 16. To that end, they agreed to increase the number of international observers in the Karabakh conflict zone. Also, they expressed satisfaction that the ceasefire was now holding. Prior to that, a meeting between both leaders was organized on May 16 in Vienna, with top diplomats from the Minsk Group co-chairing countries hosting the summit.
