Deputy Minister of Defense: Armenian army is ready for any  development of the situation in the Karabakh conflict zone

ArmInfo.The Armenian army is ready for any development of the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone. This was announced on December 6 at a press conference in Yerevan by  Deputy Minister of Defense of the Republic of Armenia  Gabriel Balayan, referring to yesterday's statement by Miroslav  Lajcak about the fragility of peace in the Karabakh conflict zone.

"We do not connect the negotiation process with the training of the  Armed Forces. There are no changes in the intensity of training in  the army, and I can say with confidence that we are ready for any  development of the situation at the frontline," Balayan assured.   However, he emphasized that the situation at the frontline is  relatively stable. The Deputy Minister of Defense stated that there  was no increase or decrease in the number of violations of the  ceasefire regime.  "Except for the case when our soldier was wounded  on the front line and to which the Artsakh Defense Army gave a tough  response, nothing extraordinary happened on the front line," Balayan  concluded.

It should be noted that on the eve of the 26th meeting of the OSCE  Foreign Ministers Council in Bratislava (Slovakia), Slovak Foreign  Minister and OSCE Chairman-in-Office Miroslav Lajcak, in particular,  said:  "The dialogue continued throughout the year. Through various  platforms, the organization tried to fortify confidence, relieve  tension and maintain dialogue. There is a real threat of escalation  of the Nagorno- Karabakh conflict. I don't have a magic formula for  resolving conflicts once and for all. But I have a firm belief that  the OSCE's efforts have been lifted The tensions with opening  channels for a new dialogue are invaluable, and the OSCE is the first  organization to offer its support for concrete steps towards peace.
