Indonesia urges Armenia, Azerbaijan to end fighting in Karabakh

Indonesia called for an immediate halt to armed clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan, voicing concern over the escalating tensions in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, 

Spokesperson for Indonesia’s Foreign Ministry Teuku Faizasyah urged both sides to exercise restraint and pursue dialogue to peacefully resolve conflicts in line with international law and existing UN resolutions.

"Indonesia also calls on the two sides to return to the Minsk Process negotiation table facilitated by the OSCE," Anadolu Agency cited him as saying.

He advised Indonesian citizens residing in Azerbaijan and Armenia to always comply with regulations set by local governments and maintain close contact with the Indonesian embassies.

The Armenian armed forces committed a large-scale provocation, subjecting the positions of the Azerbaijani army to intensive shelling from large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery installations of various calibers in the front-line zone on Sept. 27 at 05:00 (Msk). The command of the Azerbaijani Army decided to launch a counter-offensive operation of Azerbaijani troops along the entire front to suppress the combat activity of the Armenian armed forces and ensure the safety of the civilian population. Seven villages of Fizuli and Jabrayil districts, key heights near Talysh, as well as Murovdag were liberated.
