Secretary of the Security Council Armen Grigoryan on Friday received Helen Fazey, Chargé d'Affaires of the United Kingdom in Armenia.
Grigoryan called Chargé d'Affaires' attention to Azerbaijan's gross violation of the three humanitarian ceasefires reached by the persistent efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair countries. Mr. Secretary also emphasized that Azerbaijan's aggression is accompanied by numerous violations of international humanitarian law, war crimes, as well as regular shelling of civilians and civilian infrastructure.
The Secretary of the Security highlighted that Turkey poses a threat not only to the very existence of the people of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), but also threatens regional and extra-regional security due to its negative involvement in regional security and stability. It has been destabilizing the region by transferring terrorist groups and adopting a provocative policy of instigating non-compliance with the ceasefire.
Helen Fazey, Chargé d'Affaires of the United Kingdom, emphasized the immediate need to implement the ceasefire agreement.
