IJEVAN, Armenia—The OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs conducted a monitoring mission on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, during which they registered shots from the Azeri side. The shots were recorded by the Field Assistants of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Armenpress reports.

In the city of Ijevan, the mediators met with the Governor of Tavush, Hovik Abovian. Abovian briefed the Co-Chairs on the situation near the border and explained the kinds of problems routine gunfire causes for the towns and villages in the region.

The Co-Chairs had a short meeting with local residents, who presented their grievances. The mediators will visit Yerevan next for a series of meetings.

    OSCE has been neglecting these provocations for years, by failing to mention the real perpetrator. What will it say now?

    Well, OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs did not know who the real Azerbaijani Turks were. Now they know for good who these animals are.
    Long live free and independent Artsakh.

    Only such ugly incidents will shake up the impotent minds of the West. They still don’t know who the Turks really are.

    Azeri soldiers can’t read English letters that say OSCE written in bold on these White Land Rovers ! Reading and literacy is not a priority in the education of soldiers in the oil rich lands of Azerbaijan. British Petroleum must do more to reinvest their blood money back into Azerbaijan’s education system.
