“We have seen significant evidence of Azerbaijani shelling inside Armenia” – United States
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 14, ARMENPRESS. The United States has seen sufficient evidence that Azerbaijan is shelling inside Armenia and significant damage to Armenian infrastructure, United States Department of State spokesperson Ned Price said at a press briefing.
“Well, as we said in the readout of the Secretary’s calls that took place overnight, he urged President Aliyev to cease hostilities immediately, to disengage military forces, and to work to resolve all outstanding issues between Armenia and Azerbaijan through negotiations that are peaceful and diplomacy that is constructive. We have seen significant evidence of Azerbaijani shelling inside Armenia and significant damage to Armenian infrastructure, but most important for us is that both of these parties commit to a cessation of hostilities and commit to a broader de-escalation,” Price said.
Azerbaijan launched an unprovoked large-scale attack on Armenia from several directions on September 13. Both military and civilian infrastructures were hit by artillery bombardments and UAV strikes.
