As UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutterres said in an official statement today, he condemns “all attacks on populated areas” in and around the Karabakh conflict zone, as Armenia and Azerbaijan reportedly accused each other of violating the latest humanitarian ceasefire agreement.
As the UN official website reports, the UN chief reiterated that “indiscriminate attacks on populated areas anywhere, including in Stepanakert/Khankendi and other localities in and around the immediate Nagorno-Karabakh zone of conflict”, were likewise totally unacceptable.
The UN chief also noted the latest ceasefire, which came shortly after a missile attack reportedly killed and wounded dozens in Ganja on Saturday.
“The Secretary-General notes the latest announcement on the start of the humanitarian truce on 18 October and expects both parties to fully abide by this commitment and resume substantive negotiations without delay under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs”, the statement concluded.
Armenia's attack on Ganja claimed 14 lives.
