The relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan and several other issues were included on the agenda of the two-day meeting of EU Foreign Ministers in Luxembourg, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy said.
“We have also discussed relations with our Eastern Partners. We have particularly focused on the recent hope-inspiring events in Belarus, where a number of political prisoners were released from jail on August 22. We have also discussed the current state of affairs in Georgia and Moldova, as well as the events taking place in Armenia and Azerbaijan,” Federica Mogherini told reporters, according to RFE/RL Armenian service.
Mogherini, however, failed to mention which exact questions concerning Armenia and Azerbaijan were discussed at the meeting.
An Armenian contract soldier Hayk Devoyan (born in 1975) was deadly wounded in the Azeri armed forces attack in the province of Tavush, spokesperson for the Armenian Defense Ministry said.
Azerbaijani armed forces continuously violated the ceasefire at the line of contact with Armenia (Tavush province) on the evening and night of September 5.
Azeri armed forces attacked Armenian posts and border villages, firing from various caliber weapons, including mortars, infantry support guns and artillery weapons.
Keeping the situation under control, the Armenian armed forces mostly stayed committed to the ceasefire, taking retaliatory measures only in extreme necessity to silence the rivals’ attacks.
