Opposition leader: Armenia often violates cease-fire regime to present Azerbaijan as aggressive country
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 24 / Trend T. Hajiyev /
Taking into account Armenia's efforts to present Azerbaijan as an aggressive country, it is obvious that the frequent violations of the cease-fire regime correspond with the interests of Armenia, Musavat Party head Isa Gambar said.
"Armenia, tries to blame Azerbaijan, by violating cease-fire regime, organizing subversion", Isa Gambar said.
The Armenian military personnel often violate cease-fire regime on the frontline. This resulted in casualties among military men on both sides.
Musavat party head said that the violations of the ceasefire regime are not new. Since 1994, when the agreement on the cease-fire was reached, and to this day cease-fire regime is periodically violated.
"There is other nature of the current violation. We are tired of the long talks having imitation character. Armenia's continuation of the policy of occupation, denial from opportunities to solve the problem, of course, affect the process," Gambar said.
The opposition leader believes that broad military actions will not start in the nearest future, adding that despite the events, one can not expect active military operations in this situation.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994.
The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
