Armenia, Azerbaijan accuse each other of violating new ceasefire agreement

Armenia and Azerbaijan have accused each other of violating the new ceasefire over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Press secretary of Armenia’s Defence Ministry, Shushan Stepanyan said: “the regular ceasefire violation has been recorded at approximately 9.10 a.m. Azerbaijani side targeted positions located in a south-eastern direction, firing 5 artillery shells in that direction.”

The Azerbaijani Defence Ministry later accused Armenia of not having observed the truce. It alleged that Armenian forces fired at Azerbaijani settlements and the positions of the Azerbaijani army “along the entire front, as well as on the Armenia-Azerbaijan state border” using various small arms, mortars and howitzers.

The truce that took effect Monday morning was agreed upon on Sunday after talks facilitated by the United States.
