Sargsyan: The revolutionary authorities ignored the diplomatic  achievements of the April war

Sargsyan: The revolutionary authorities ignored the diplomatic  achievements of the April war

ArmInfo.  Third president of  Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, in a short video titled "Let's speak  honestly: Serzh Sargsyan on the April war" part five, spoke about the  diplomatic achievements of the April war.

"I am glad that we managed to make sure that this war did not bring  any benefit to Azerbaijan," Sargsyan said. He recalled that earlier  President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev made a statement that he was  being forced to recognize the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh behind  closed doors. "This statement directly testifies to our diplomatic  successes," the former head of state said, adding that statements  made later in Vienna and St. Petersburg also point to this fact.  Sagrsyan also pointed out that after the hostilities, the OSCE Minsk  Group issued a statement that the 1994 trilateral ceasefire agreement  remains in force, and the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries at a  high level voiced the need to create international mechanisms to  investigate incidents. "This is an extremely important achievement,"  he added.

Meanwhile, Sargsyan said that after the events of the spring of 2018,  the revolutionary authorities ignored and failed to use the  diplomatic achievements of the April War, which raises questions.

To note, on the night of April 2, 2016, the armed forces of  Azerbaijan committed a large-scale military aggression against  Artsakh. The war was accompanied by war crimes, gross violations of  the laws and customs of war, as well as the norms of international  humanitarian law.

The April hostilities have become the largest since the May 1994  ceasefire agreement. During the hostilities from 2 to 5 April, all 

Armenian military units, including artillerymen, tankmen and  anti-tank units, showed themselves excellently. During the intense  fighting, the units of the Artsakh Defense Army destroyed 2  Azerbaijani helicopters that attacked the positions of the Armenian  side, 26 tanks, as well as 14 drones, 1 BM-21 (Grad) rocket and  artillery installation, 4 BMPs and 1 engineer installation.

During the hostilities on the Line of Contact, the Armenian side lost  64 servicemen, 13 volunteers, 4 civilians, more than 120 people were  wounded, 9 more servicemen died after the cessation of active  hostilities, in the period until April 13, several died later in  hospitals.

Based on the data of the State Department, presented on May 16 in  Vienna in the same year, it becomes clear that in addition to 81  losses from the Armenian side, about 270 Azerbaijanis died. At the  same time, analysts of the Bellingcat international research group  estimate Baku's losses at 400-500 killed soldiers.
