The Baku Declaration on the suspension of military operations in Nagorno Karabakh is not true and is an information trap, according to the Press Secretary of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia – Artsrun Hovhannisyan.
“The Azerbaijani statement is an information trap that does not mean a unilateral ceasefire,” said the journalist on his page on “Facebook”.
He also said that the Ministry of Defense of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic will make an official statement on the matter.
Previously, the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan said it would unilaterally stop all military operations in Karabakh.
As a reminder, on April 2nd the representatives of the unrecognized NKR, the Armenian Defense Ministry, as well as Azerbaijani security officials, reported the deteriorating security situation in the Karabakh conflict zone. Shelling and clashes were reported.
The President of Russia Vladimir Putin expressed his concern about the resumption of hostilities in Nagorno Karabakh. He urged the parties to the conflict to start a ceasefire.
