YEREVAN.- The international agencies must intensify control of incidents on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan said in an interview with Armenpress agency.

Minister believes the relevant organizations of the OSCE Minsk Group co- chairing states and international agencies should take control of the regional deelpments, and especially the cease-fire violation cases.

“It is obvious that the violations and subversion attempts are provoked by Azerbaijani. It is unacceptable that Azerbaijani side, ignoring the strong control exercised by strong states, continue border infiltration attempts. The control should be made tenser, an atmosphere of mutual trust must be created so NKR [Nagorno-Karabakh Republic] conflict settlement negotiation processes go forward” Ohanyan noted. 

Seyran Ohanyan reiterated Armenia’s readiness to create mechanisms to hold investigation into the border incidents.

“The co-chairs have come forth with the suggestion on the launch of border incidents investigation mechanisms. Yet there are some issues, for instance OSCE Minsk Group and the monitoring the group’s financing. There is a need for appropriate experts, who would be able to respond quickly the occurred incidents. We have already expressed our willingness in the regard of the process,” the Minister added.
