Armenia blames Azerbaijan, Turkey for violating ceasefire, America calls on external parties not to intervene

The Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan blamed Azerbaijan and Turkey for violating the three ceasefire agreements, while the United States called on foreign parties not to interfere in the Karabakh conflict.

Pashinyan said during a phone call with the U.S. President's National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien yesterday that Azerbaijan has violated agreements on ceasefire 3 times, ignoring all the rules of international relations and the efforts of the Minsk Group Co-chairs, and stressed that "Turkey supports Azerbaijan in this."

According to a statement issued by his press office following the phone call, Pashinyan pointed to "the impossibility of ensuring a ceasefire without indicating who violated it and who cares about the continuation of the war."

While the U.S. President's National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien called on foreign parties to refrain from interfering in the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Karabakh, and said in a statement after the phone call: "We call on all external parties to refrain from interfering and join the efforts of the United States aimed at returning to negotiations sponsored by the Minsk Group (affiliated with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe)."

O'Brien called on Yerevan and Baku to abide by their pledges regarding the ceasefire in Karabakh, and stressed that "this conflict has no military solution."

For more than a month, Karabakh has been witnessing clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan, amid the strong support provided by Turkey to the Azerbaijani party in terms of equipment and bringing mercenaries from Syria and Libya to fight alongside it.
