YEREVAN (ArmRadio)—Armenian Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan received on Wednesday the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Ambasssador Andrzej Kasprzyk.

Sargsyan briefed Kasprzyk on the situation at the Artsakh/Azerbaijani border, also known as the “line of contact” and underlined that Azerbaijan has been recently keeping tensions high at the line of contact by increasing the number of shots and using weapons of larger caliber.

He said the Armenian forces resort to response actions only in case of extreme necessity and remain committed to the restraining strategy.

Ambassador Kasprzyk noted, in turn, that the Office of the Personal representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office maintains efforts to ease tensions at line of contact and said he hopes for progress in that direction in the near future.
