The statement namely said “According to information collected from multiple reliable sources, on 15 May, Azerbaijani armed forces fired a missile across the Line of Contact, striking military equipment”.
The OSCE MG Co-Chairs condemned the recent ceasefire violations and urged the sides to take all necessary measures to prevent any further escalation in the conflict zone.
Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Ara Babloyan responded to the statement.
Babloyan said “Touching upon the statement of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs, I have to mention that this is the first time when the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs are making a direct targeted criticism against Azerbaijan.
This proves the fact that Armenia is moving by the path of democracy. The OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs’ statement confirms the reality that Armenia is directing its entire efforts on achieving the solution exclusively through peace. Unlike the Azerbaijani authorities, whose imagined path is military aggression.
The OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs’ statement also proves that our diplomatic activity is successful. We will continue strengthening parliamentary diplomacy.”
