YEREVAN, September 29, /ARKA/. The UN Security Council is planning to convene on Tuesday for urgent closed-door consultations over the recent escalation between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, a source in the organization told TASS Monday.
“The discussion is likely to be held on Tuesday as closed-door consultations,” the source noted.
According to TASS, a number of European states initiated the meeting. The consultation format implies that only diplomats of the 15 Security Council member states are in attendance without the parties to the conflict.
The situation in Nagorno-Karabakh escalated on September 27, when Azerbaijani army had launched a massive offensive along the entire length of the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh shelling a number of settlements in Nagorno-Karabakh, including its capital Stepanakert. -0-
