"The past testifies that, as always, Baku not only is not inclined to  direct the reached agreements to a peaceful settlement of the  conflict and exclusion of unjustified losses, but, conversely,  through deliberate provocations, it is destabilizing the situation.  Considering the necessity of effective implementation of the  processes for the peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict by the  international community, in particular, the OSCE Minsk Group, the  Armed Forces of Artsakh refrained from responding. However, this does  not mean that in the case of development of processes in the same  logic, the offensive actions of the enemy will remain unanswered. The  NKR JSC with all responsibility warns the military-political  leadership of Baku that in case of continuing provocations the answer  will be disproportionate and painful, "the NKR's message says.
