More senseless violence on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border

There was more senseless violence on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border on Wednesday (28 September). Unconfirmed reports suggest that three Armenian soldiers were killed and one Azerbaijani soldier was wounded.

Both sides have accused each other of provoking the incident.

EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus, Toivo Klaar described the losses as senseless and said that security is only truly possible if borders are respected and troops don't face each other at close distances.

Today there were again reports of three 🇦🇲 soldiers killed and one 🇦🇿 wounded. These and many other senseless victims feed hate and instability. Security is only truly possible if borders are respected and troops don’t face each other at close distances. Peace cannot be forced.
