Iran says Karabakh conflict should be solved through dialogue and negotiations
Feb 28 2017
The area indicated is apparently the location of the bodies, between the Azerbaijani (left) and Armenian (right) trenches.
According to the Ministry "fierce fighting took place between the enemy, trying to seize advantageous positions in Khojavand-Fuzuli direction of the front and our military units".
Turkey's Foreign Ministry has condemned Armenia for committing "heavy weapon attacks" against Azerbaijan early on February 25 in an attack that killed five Azerbaijani soldiers, according to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.
Armenia's Defense Ministry similarly accused Baku of seeking to "mislead its own people and the global community".
Qasemi said, "Iran invites its two northern neighbors to self-restraint and recommends both sides to do their best to stabilize the situation on the ground through dialogue and negotiations".
Levon Ayvazyan, Head of Defense Policy Department of the Armenian Ministry of Defense, received on Saturday the Military Attachés of foreign countries accredited to Armenia. As a result of the countermeasures taken by the Defense Army, the Azerbaijani side suffered losses and has wounded.
Artsakh says Azerbaijan is to blame for the failure to recover the bodies. Several Azerbaijani attacks were also reported ahead of the centenary of the Armenian genocide commemoration marked on April 24 that year.
Worldwide mediators urged the two sides "to keep heavy military equipment in its present positions and to allow recovery of the dead".
The operation was carried out with the participation of the Field Assistants of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office and representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICTC). Efforts to secure a permanent settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict have failed despite mediation led by France, Russia and the United States.
In apparent response, Azerbaijani media published a comment from another retired officer, former army corps commander Colonel Shahir Ramaldanov, who also claimed that the fighting was a result of an Armenian attack and suggested that the Azerbaijani servicemen whose bodies were found in the no-man's land were part of "mobile posts". The Sides accuse each other of an incursion attempt.
"The Co-chairs remind the Parties of their commitments to refrain from the use of force".
