YEREVAN. - The recent death of four servicemen of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR/Karabakh/Artsakh) Defense Army is on the conscience of our political figures, member of the Presidium of Congress of Refugees from the Azerbaijani SSR, Mariam Avagyan, told journalists Monday.
In her words, the Armenian political figures don’t take any action and retain the liberated areas in the previous form, while the Azeris want to return them. “In any case, it is necessary to speak about the format to be developed so that it is also proper for the Armenians side for establishing peace,” she noted.
As reported earlier, three Armenian soldiers were killed as a result of the firing by the Azerbaijani armed forces on June 16. Defense Army servicemen Arayik Matinyan (born in 1997), Vigen Petrosyan (born in 1997) and Vardan Sargsyan (born in 1997) were fatally wounded.
In the morning of June 17, Karabakh army said Azerbaijan resorted to a new provocation as a result of which a 20-year-old soldier was killed in the morning. Two other soldiers were wounded.
