Armenian Permanent Representative urged CSTO allies to demonstrate  solidarity and mutual support in accordance with the spirit and  letter of the Charter of the Organization

ArmInfo. Viktor Biyagov, Permanent and Plenipotentiary Representative of the Republic of Armenia to the Collective Security Treaty Organization at a meeting  of the Organization's Permanent Council, spoke in detail about the  aggravation of the situation in the north- east direction of the  Armenian-Azerbaijani border that arose as a result of the Azerbaijani  aggression since July 12, the targeted shelling of civilian  infrastructure and civilians by Azerbaijan.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of  Armenia, the Permanent Representative of Armenia to the CSTO noted  that the civilian infrastructure of the Armenian settlements of  Chinari and Aygepar was fired at by the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan,  resulting in damage to civilian facilities.  "According to the latest  information, civilian infrastructure of the city of Berd has been  fired upon by unmanned aerial vehicles in recent hours.  Recently,  the Azerbaijani side, despite the calls of the OSCE Minsk Group  co-chairs to refrain from provocative actions, hostile rhetoric and  strengthen the ceasefire, contrary to the call of the UN Secretary  General for a global ceasefire, supported by the CSTO member states,  continues to voice threats of the use of force and military  escalation. The entire responsibility for the escalation of the  situation in the CSTO responsibility zone lies with the  military-political leadership of Azerbaijan, "he stressed.  In the  context of issues related to the need to maintain regional security  and stability, Biyagov drew the attention of representatives of the  CSTO member countries to a statement by the Turkish Foreign Ministry,  noting that Armenia strongly condemns Turkey's attempts to provoke  instability in our region.   "The current situation is an object of serious concern and attention  for the entire Organization and each of its members, since there is  an attempt to direct aggression against one of its members in the  area of responsibility of the Organization.  We urge our allies to  demonstrate solidarity and mutual support in accordance with the  spirit and letter of the Charter of the Organization. This  unprecedented situation is becoming an important test for each of us  and for the Organization as a whole, "the Armenian Permanent  Representative emphasized.  The Permanent Mission of the Republic of  Armenia will continue to work within the framework of the CSTO on the  current situation.
