YEREVAN. – Ceasefire violations initiated by Azerbaijani side are targeted at creation of tension and are an attempt to prevent progress in talks, Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan said on Wednesday.
“The adversary cannot understand that it is impossible to force us to do something. They imposed war, and achieved success. Now we are being imposed an arms race. However, Azerbaijani side should remember that only atmosphere of confidence can bring progress. One of the elements of confidence is removal of snipers, refusal from sabotage acts and international investigations into the incidents,” the Minister told reporters.
However, he emphasized that success in talks is related to readiness of the parties to reach mutual compromise.
“No one will be able to impose something on us,” he added.
