    Ararat Mirzoyan meets with Josep Borrell during UN General Assembly

    Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan held a meeting with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security, Josep Borrell, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

    During their discussion, both officials stressed that Azerbaijan's actions in Nagorno-Karabakh are in direct contradiction to the fundamental norms of international law and are clearly designed to deprive the people of Nagorno-Karabakh of their homeland.

    Ararat Mirzoyan expressed his view on the matter in his microblog, stating, 'International partners, including EU, should take urgent action to prevent.'

    As previously reported by NEWS.am, Azerbaijan's Armed Forces initiated artillery fire along the entire line of contact in Nagorno Karabakh on September 19, starting at 1 p.m., in an attempt to breach the defense line of the Nagorno Karabakh Defense Forces.

    Presently, Stepanakert, the capital of Nagorno Karabakh, and other settlements are enduring heavy shelling. Gegham Stepanyan, the Human Rights Defender of Nagorno Karabakh, has documented multiple casualties and injuries among civilians, including children.

    As of September 20, fighting continues along the contact line of Nagorno Karabakh with varying degrees of intensity. Units of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces are employing various weapons not only to maintain their positional advance but also to target civilian infrastructure.
