At 12 p.m. today, the humanitarian ceasefire went into effect along the Artsakh-Azerbaijan line of contact. The parameters of the ceasefire have yet to be defined.

The ceasefire, which has already been violated along the frontlines, does not and cannot deter our efforts on the international front, because the Azerbaijani authorities are continuing their military operations and belligerent rhetoric, and Turkey continues to provide unconditional support to Azerbaijan, including on the military front.

We must continue our worldwide protests, political activism, highlighting that;

  • The most proper, effective, and just method to resolve the Artsakh issue is the recognition of the independence of the Republic of Artsakh;
  • From the territories that it controls, Azerbaijan should get rid of the international terrorist mercenaries who have been brought there with Turkey’s initiative and backing;
  • Because of all its efforts to act as a party to the conflict, Turkey should be expelled from the OSCE Minsk group. International sanctions must be imposed on Turkey due to its encroachment on the stability of the entire region.

The ceasefire in no way means that the war unleashed by the Azerbaijan-Turkey alliance is over. The war continues, even if the shooting, bombing, and shelling have become relatively mild.

In conjunction with our work on the political and public relations fronts, all Armenians must continue, with the same fervor and vigor to participate in the pan-Armenian fundraising efforts and the Armenia-Artsakh humanitarian aid deliveries, which are being coordinated with the appropriate state
structures, to overcome the consequences of the war.

Now is the time to bring this fight to its victorious conclusion and to secure that victory. We are all armed and everyone must give to the best of their abilities.

    If we stop where we are now, they will come back to destroy Armenian Nation when they see opportunities in future! If Garegin Njdeh was alive, he would conquer Azerbaijan and divide it’s entire land back to it’s historically rightful owners!
