The Chiefs of the General Staff of Armenia and Azerbaijan, Yuri Khachaturov and Najmaddin Sadigov, met in Moscow yesterday, April 5, and agreed to cease fire and truce along the Line of Contact between the armed forces of Nagorno Karabakh Republic and Azerbaijan.

Seyran Ohanyan, the Minister of Defense of Armenia, made this statement in the Government session in Yerevan on Wednesday, April 6.

“The deterioration of the situation on the ground demonstrates the need for an immediate negotiation, under the auspices of the Co-chairs, on a comprehensive settlement”, - reads the statement issued by OSCE Minsk Group together with the OSCE Troika representatives, convening an emergency meeting in Vienna today (around 3PM, CEST).

According to confirmed reports, affirmed by both Stepanakert and Baku, ceasefire has been established along the Line of Contact on April 5, as of 12:00 local time.

Peace talks between Armenia, Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan have been facilitated by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe since March 1992 within the frameworks of so-called Minsk Group, co-Chaired by Russia, United States and France since mid-1990s.

Ceasefire agreement between Armenia, Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan, facilitated by Russia's representative to the CSCE/OSCE Minsk Group Vladimir Kazimirov, was signed on May 5, 1994, which had been maintained with only sporadic violations along the Line of Contact and international border till the latest Azerbaijani large scale offensive in the night of April 2, 2016.

Over the last two years Armenia, Nagorno Karabakh, the OSCE Minsk Group co-Chairs and over 80 U.S. Congressmen proposed (Royce-Engel bill) concrete measures to de-escalate situation and establish ceasefire monitoring equipments along the borders.
Azerbaijan has been repeatedly rejecting these calls.
