ArmInfo. OSCE monitoring on the contact line of the Armenian and
Azerbaijani armed forces was held without violations.

As ArmInfo correspondent reports, the monitoring was held near Berkaber
village of Armenia's Tavush region. Field assistants of the Personal
Representative of OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk, Antal
Herdich and Vladimir Chountulov took part in the monitoring from
the Armenian party, as well as Imre Palatinus and Jaslan Nurtazin -
from the Azerbaijani party. Monitoring started at 11:45 AM and lasted
for about 7 minutes. Visual contact was made at a distance of 1500
meters. No ceasefire violation has been fixed.

To note, it was initially scheduled to hold the monitoring near
Koti village, where an Azerbaijani subversive group was found out
and partially liquidated on March 3. However, the day before the
monitoring, the Azerbaijani party said it could not assure security
of participants in the monitoring in this direction. To also note,
despite the Armenian party's proposal to extend the monitoring to half
an hour today, the Azerbaijani party insisted on its early completion.
