Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan chaired an emergency meeting of the Republic's Security Council.
At the meeting, among other things, it was proposed to discuss the issue of the Armenian armed forces delivering a commensurate blow to the enemy on the Karabakh-Azerbaijani line of contact.
Earlier it became known that the Armenian government banned all men over 18 years old who are in the mobilization reserve from leaving the republic. Leaving the country is possible only with the permission of the recruiting office.
Clashes in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic began on September 27. Azerbaijan reported that Armenian forces fired at its positions and settlements on the contact line and announced a counteroffensive. Armenia stated that Azerbaijan attacked Artsakh.
In 1991, Nagorno-Karabakh, the majority of whose population were Armenians, declared independence from Azerbaijan. Baku tried to return the region by force, a war broke out. In 1994, Azerbaijan, Armenia, and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, with the mediation of Russia, signed a truce protocol. However, hostilities periodically resume.
