ArmInfo. Artsakh's Foreign Ministry issued a statement in connection with the adoption by the US House of Representatives of an amendment to the law on budgetary  allocation for national defense proposed by Congressman Judy Chu.

The statement of the NKR MFA, in particular, states:

We are convinced that the consistent strengthening of the cease-fire  regime, including through the introduction of international control  mechanisms, will help create a favorable atmosphere for effective  negotiations for a peaceful settlement.

Artsakh has repeatedly stressed the importance of creating conditions  for the continuation of the peace process and has come up with  constructive initiatives to implement measures to build confidence.  As a final example, the official Stepanakert's willingness to provide  data from the video monitoring systems on the border situation to the  international intermediary can be cited.  Moreover, this system of  continuous monitoring on the contact line can become an integral part  of the international mechanism to monitor the strengthening of the  ceasefire.  Unfortunately, the Azerbaijani side has consistently  rejected both the proposals of the Artsakh side and the mediators,  including the initiative of congressmen Ed Royce and Eliot Engel. We  hope that the amendment proposed by Judy Chu will be a stimulus for  the implementation of the "Reuss-Engel" initiative.  It should be  noted that the US House of Representatives adopted a multi-party  resolution by Congressman Judy Chu on the implementation of measures  to reduce tensions in the Karabakh conflict zone. The resolution  envisages to install fire-locating systems, reduce snipers and heavy  equipment from the advanced Artsakh-Azerbaijani troops to reduce  tensions in the Karabakh conflict zone, increase the number of  observers. The document must be included in the US National Defense  Act 2020 for the fiscal year. In 2015, a similar document was  submitted by congressmen Engel and Royce. In addition, with the  mediation of the OSCE Minsk Group, Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed on  similar proposals in Vienna and St.  Petersburg, but Baku continues  to reject these documents.
