Promoting the downgrading of the situation in Naka and continuing mediation by various parties

The conflict between Azerbaijani and Armenian in Nagorno Karabakh region continued on November 11, calling on the two countries to abide by the cease-fire agreement. The Armenian Foreign Minister arrived in the Russian capital Moscow on the evening of November 11. He is scheduled to meet with the Russian Foreign Minister on the 12th, and will also hold a meeting with the representatives of the co chair of the Minsk group of the organization for security and cooperation in Europe. On the 11th, the Ministry of foreign affairs of Azerbaijan designated Armenian troops to attack ganja, the second largest city of Azerbaijan, overnight, killing at least 7 people and injuring 33 people. The Armenian side denied it. Russia’s satellite news agency reported on the 12th that stepanakte, the largest city in the Naka region, was “relatively calm” from the night of the 11th to the morning of the 12th. The satellite agency in stepanakert said that no air raid warning was heard on the night of the 11th, and most local people chose to rest in the basement. Street lights went out all night to make it more difficult to launch attacks using drones. On the morning of the 12th, the air raid alarm lasted about 5 minutes, and many witnesses confirmed that explosions were heard in the distance from stepanakert. The Naka region is located in the southwest of Azerbaijan and its residents are mostly Armenian. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, war broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenian over the issue of Naka ownership. The two countries reached an agreement on a comprehensive cease-fire in 1994, but they have been in a state of hostility over the issue of Naka, with occasional conflicts. The European Union’s high representative for foreign and security policy, Josep Borelli, said on the 11th that he was “extremely concerned” about the violation of the cease-fire agreement by the two sides in the Naka conflict, urging both sides to “fully abide by” the cease-fire agreement and “immediately carry out substantive dialogue” under the supervision of the OSCE Minsk group. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Armenian Prime Minister Nicol pashiniyan held a telephone conversation on the 11th. German government spokesman Stefan sebetz said that the German side welcomed the cease-fire agreement reached between Afghanistan and Asia and called on the parties to the conflict to immediately cease hostility and carry out substantive dialogue. Armenian foreign minister zogrub mnachakanyan arrived in Moscow on the evening of the 11th and is scheduled to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the 12th. The meeting with Russia’s Ministry of foreign affairs, nikarov, said the meeting would create conditions for further cooling down the conflict. On the evening of November 11, Lavrov held a telephone call with Turkish Foreign Minister mevrut chawusholu, calling on both sides of the Naka conflict to “strictly implement” the cease-fire agreement. On the evening of 11th, chawushiolu also held a telephone call with foreign minister jehon bairamov of Azerbaijan to discuss the situation in Naka.
