YEREVAN, December 16. /ARKA/. An Armenian serviceman Hrant Poghosyan was killed by gunfire from the Azerbaijani side Saturday, the press office of Armenia’s ministry of defense reported.
The ministry of defense offers its condolences to the family and friends of the soldier, says the report.
The ministry stresses the incident once again demonstrates that Azerbaijan, despite the calls for restraint from the OSCE Minsk Group, continues breaking the peace regime, particularly when the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs are in Baku.
Armenia’s ministry of defense reminds that following minister of defense Seyran Ohanyan’s instruction no single shot has been fire by the Armenian side since November 5 when the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs called the sides to show restraint.
After the incident, the Armed Forces of Armenia will be taking preventive and strict measures, says the report. –0--
