There will always be tension on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. That is why we need international observers, Andranik Kocharyan, head of the parliamentary Standing Committee on Defense and Security, MP from the ruling Civil Contract party, said in the National Assembly today.

According to the deputy, new tension on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border emerged during engineering works on the frontline. These works are carried out from both the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides.

"They are often located in close proximity to each other, and because of this there will be periodic conflicts. This has the potential to turn clashes into a large-scale war. From this point of view, deployment of observers could defuse the situation," says the head of the commission.

The deputy is convinced that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen could come up with such a proposal themselves.

"Even now they can put pressure on Baku to finally agree to solve the issue. A monitoring mission does not mean that international observers will come and stand between the troops of the two conflicting countries. It is the use of surveillance systems, including drones. They will be able to monitor and record the violation, identifying the actual culprit," Kocharyan explained.
