In an interview with the Armenian newspaper “Joghovourt” (Ժողովուրդ) General Norat Ter-Krikoryantz, Chief of Staff of the Armenian Ministry of Defense from 1992 to 1995, hero of Artsakh, says the cease- fire signed in May 1994 with Azerbaijan was a mistake from the Armenian side. “Those who attended the talks have made a significant error. You should not sign a cease-fire, the victors of the war have never signed such an agreement. We had to sign a capitulation of Azerbaijan document and the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh with its borders,
“said Norat Ter-Krikoryantz. For the agreement to stop fighting for the “four-day war” in April to Nagorno-Karabakh, Norat Ter-Krikoryantz says this is the OSCE forced the Armenian forces to sign this agreement. According Norat Ter-Kerikoryantz, instead of signing the agreement, it was necessary to compel Azerbaijan to meet its obligations signed in 1994.
While a signature for Baku means no commitment. The April agreement and violations of the cease-fire that followed and are almost daily prove that Azerbaijan does not respect the signed documents. Under these conditions only force can silence Baku.
