The authorities of the Republic of Artsakh accepted the proposal of the command of the Russian peacekeeping mission regarding the cessation of fire, as the press release by Office of the President of Artsakh says.
Artsakh's information headquarters informs that an agreement was reached with the mediation of Russian peacekeepers on the complete cessation of military operations from 1 p.m. today.
"From September 19, the Republic of Azerbaijan launched a large-scale offensive along the line of contact with the Republic of Artsakh, along with massive artillery and air strikes.
The analysis of the actions of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan shows that the task of dividing Artsakh and causing irreparable damage to its vitality is set. During two days of stubborn battles, the units of the Armed Forces of Artsakh heroically defended against the enemy, which was several times superior in manpower and military equipment, causing the greatest losses.
The analysis of the actions of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan shows that unfortunately, the Artsakh side also has losses and wounded, and in some areas the enemy managed to break into the military positions of the Defense Forces, take control of a number of heights and strategic road junctions.
In the current situation, the actions of the international community in the direction of stopping the war and resolving the situation are insufficient.
Considering all this, the authorities of the Republic of Artsakh accepted the proposal of the command of the Russian peacekeeping mission regarding the cessation of fire.
The parties agreed on the withdrawal of "the remaining units and servicemen of the Armed Forces of Armenia" and the dissolution and complete disarmament of the armed formations of Nagorno Karabakh, the withdrawal of heavy military equipment and weapons from Nagorno Karabakh "for their early utilization".
"The issues raised by the Azerbaijani side regarding reintegration, ensuring the rights and security of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as ensuring the livelihood of the population of Nagorno-Karabakh within the framework of the Constitution of Azerbaijan, will be discussed at the meeting of the representatives of the local Armenian population and the central authorities of the Republic of Azerbaijan, which will take place in Evlakh on September 21, 2023 and during further meetings," the press release states.
