Today, in accordance with the earlier achieved agreement with the NKR
authorities, the OSCE mission conducted an off-schedule monitoring
of the contact-line of Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijani armed forces
near the settlement of Yusifjanlu, the NKR Aghdam region.

According to the information DE FACTO received at the NKR MFA Press
Office, from the positions of the NKR Defense Army the monitoring
was conducted by Field Assistants of the Personal Representative of
the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Peter Kee (Great Britain), Antal Herdich
(Hungary) and Irzhi Aberle (Czech Republic).

Despite the preliminary agreement, Personal Representative of the
OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzey Kasprzyk did not participate in the
monitoring from the Azerbaijani side.

No violation of cease-fire regime was registered. At that, the NKR MFA
representative, accompanying the OSCE mission, directed the monitoring
group members’ attention to the discrepancy of the Azerbaijani
side’s reports on the fire allegedly set by the Armenian side to the
territory, where the monitoring was conducted. This fact was fixed by
the monitoring mission. The NKR Ministry for Foreign Affairs considers
the Azerbaijani side’s misinformation as an attempt to frustrate the
OSCE monitoring, what repeatedly took place through official Baku’s


The monitoring mission from the Karabakh side was accompanied by
representatives of the NKR Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
