Armenia’s ruling Civil Contract party has postponed the congress and the election of board members for an indefinite period due to the situation on the border with Azerbaijan. MP Tsovinar Vardanyan told Armtimes.com about this.

“We will inform about the new date of the congress and the election of board members later,” the deputy said.

On the night of September 13, hostilities broke out on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the parties accused each other of aggravating the situation – Yerevan announced shelling of the southeastern border, Baku accused its neighbor of mining supply routes. There are reports of dozens of dead and wounded soldiers on both sides.

The next day, the press secretary of the Armenian Ministry of Defense Aram Torosyan stated that Azerbaijan, starting from 08:00 on September 14, using artillery, mortars and large-caliber firearms, again launched an offensive in the direction of Verin Shorji and Jermuk. He called the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border this night tense, emphasizing that Azerbaijan continues aggressive actions against the sovereign territory of Armenia, despite the unequivocal assessment of the international community.

Moscow is helping to stabilize the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border by being in close contact with Yerevan and Baku.
