8 Azerbaijani soldiers killed in shootout on Armenian-Azerbaijani contact line

8 Azerbaijani and 2 Armenian soldiers were killed in a shootout in the Gazakh District on the Armenian-Azerbaijani contact line last night, becoming the most violent incident since the 1994 ceasefire agreement. The incident happened in the context of statements by the OSCE Minsk Group about preparations for a meeting between the Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents.

Andrey Petrov, the head of the analytical section for studies of the post-Soviet space of the Lomonosov MSU Information and Analysis Center, noted that Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan had met EU Special Representative to the South Caucasus Herbert Salber yesterday and emphasized that Yerevan was committed to peaceful means of settling the conflict.

The analyst believes that Armenia is trying to provoke Azerbaijan. According to his other theory, the Armenian elites have experienced a schism, splitting them into advocates of a peaceful settlement of the conflict and those who want to maintain the status quo.
