Council of Europe Secretary General: I call on both sides to abstain from the use of force

I am concerned about reports of exchange of fire along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border. Secretary General of the Council of Europe Marija Burić made an X post on this.

“Call on both sides to abstain from the use of force. Dialogue is the only way to lasting peace,” Burić wrote.

Four servicemen were killed and one was wounded on the Armenian side in the Feb. 13 Azerbaijani fire on the Armenian positions in Nerkin Hand. The wounded is in fair condition; his life is not at risk at the moment.
