UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called on Armenia and Azerbaijan to work more closely with the OSCE Minsk Group to resolve the situation over Nagorno-Karabakh, Guterres spokesman Stefan Dujarric said, according to TASS.

"The Secretary-General calls on the parties to take concrete and urgent concrete steps, which they have agreed upon under the auspices of the Co-Chairs, as well as to fulfill their earlier commitments. "Guterres calls on the parties to continue the constructive dialogue and to intensify efforts to reach a peaceful settlement of the conflict under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs," Dujarric said.

According to the speaker, Guterres is seriously concerned about the ongoing information on the ongoing hostilities, which also affect the civilian population.

"Guterres condemns the attacks on civilians and reiterates its commitment under international law to all possible measures to ensure the lives and safety of civilians, including the security of civilian infrastructure in the event of hostilities," Dujarric said.

It should be reminded that on September 27, the Azerbaijani armed forces launched a large-scale attack in Artsakh, targeting the civilian population.

The Azerbaijani Armed Forces also targeted the military-civilian infrastructure of Artsakh, the Republic of Armenia, as a result of which 2 civilians were killed in Gegharkunik, more than 40 civilians were killed in Artsakh, and more than 120 civilians were wounded.

Journalists of both foreign and local media were wounded in the shelling by the Azerbaijani armed forces. In Armenia ռազմական Martial law was declared in Artsakh on September 27.

A humanitarian ceasefire has already been declared three times, but the Azerbaijani armed forces have violated it.
