“Absolute necessity”: Pashinyan wants int’l observer mission on border

Pashinyan’s remarks came after three Armenian servicemen were killed in Azerbaijan’s latest ceasefire violation on Wednesday, September 28.

“As a result of a new Azerbaijani attack, 3 Armenian soldiers have been killed today within the territory of Armenia. This is an attack against Armenian independence, sovereignty and democracy. The Azerbaijani invasion must be condemned and stopped,” Pashinyan said on social media

“Withdrawal of Azerbaijani troops and deployment of an international observer mission on the Armenian territories affected by Azerbaijani occupation and bordering areas is an absolute necessity.”

The latest round of fighting between the two countries began in the wee hours of September 13, when the Azerbaijani military attacked Armenian posts and shelled Armenian settlements both on the border and deep behind the frontline. At least 207 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said on Monday.
