OSCE Warns Karabakh Frontline Becoming More Volatile

YEREVAN (Eurasianet)–Monitors for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) are expressing concern about an increase in ceasefire violations along the Azerbaijan-Armenia frontline.

Andrzej Kasprzyk, the personal representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, told an April 1 news conference that area residents are suffering from the growing violence. He did not elaborate on reasons why firefights and artillery duels have been on the rise lately. But he noted that the security situation has slightly worsened since 2008.

Kasprzyk said that he would work to arrange meetings of Azerbaijani and Armenian commanders on the ground to help reduce tension. Over the past few months, there has been a flurry of media reports from both sides about ceasefire accord violations.
