Co-chairs' statement not to reveal addressee provoking unrest

`It's time for the co-chairs to calls the things by their names,
otherwise such statements create fertile ground for Azerbaijan's
provocations,' expert Edgar Hovhannisyan said.

Azerbaijani armed forces intensively violated the ceasefire regime
last week along the contact line of Armenian-Azerbaijani and
Karabakh-Azerbaijani border. In the aftermath of the intensive gunfire
three Armenian soldiers were killed, two injured. The rival also fired
towards a civilian village.

The OSCE Minsk group co-chairs released a statement yesterday which
particularly says such senseless acts violate the commitment of the
parties to refrain from the use of force and to seek a peaceful
settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and contradict the spirit
of the January 23, 2012, joint statement of Presidents Aliyev and
Sargsian.

According to the expert such duty statements don't contribute to
easing tensions at the front line, since Azerbaijan carries out more
provocative operations.

`Knowing the truth and reading the statement of the co-chairs you see
that it's not underlined who has violated the ceasefire regime and who
is responsible for the human losses,' said the expert.

E. Hovhannisyan said talks about stability are impossible unless the
addressee is highlighted.
