YEREVAN.- Armenia repeatedly stated it stands for removal of snipers from the line of contact, Armenian Foreign Minister said on Tuesday.

During a joint press conference with OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Eamon Gilmore, Edward Nalbandian said Armenia’s position is reflected in the trilateral statements approved in Sochi in March 2011 and this January.

The Minister stressed that Armenia, unlike Azerbaijan, respects the achieved arrangements and supports creating mechanisms to investigate the incidents in frontline.  

“Armenia has been and is for the creation of the mechanisms of investigation and, unlike Azerbaijan, when we agree on something, we do not backtrack on the following day.

I should recall that corresponding elements of the establishment of mechanisms are included in the relevant statements made by the Presidents of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan in March 2011 and January 2012 in Sochi. We respect those agreements and we are for the creation of the mechanisms,” he said.
