YEREVAN, October 26. / TASS /. The defense army of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) strictly adheres to the ceasefire regime, and Azerbaijan's statement about the violation of the agreement is disinformation. Press Secretary of the Armenian Defense Ministry Shushan Stepanyan wrote about this on Monday morning on her Facebook page, referring to the statement of the NKR military department.
"The Artsakh Ministry of Defense (unrecognized NKR – TASS note) declares that the units of the defense army strictly abide by the agreements reached, and the accusations of the hostile side not only have nothing to do with reality, but were made in the context of preparing information ground for the continuation of further provocations," she noted.
Stepanyan also recalled that "after the United States reached an agreement on a humanitarian ceasefire, which was to enter into force on October 26 at 08:00 (07:00 Moscow time), the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan hastened to accuse the Armenian side of gross violation of the ceasefire regime even before 08 : 00, but deleted this information after a while. "
On Sunday evening, the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan, with the mediation of the United States, agreed on a new ceasefire for humanitarian purposes in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The situation around Nagorno-Karabakh escalated on September 27. Fighting continued in the region despite two previous ceasefire agreements.
