Yerevan announced the dismissal of the head of the National Security Agency due to the continuing fighting in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, according to the agency “Evax”.
Reuters quoted the agency as saying that Armenia excluded today, Thursday, the head of the National Security Service, Argishti Kiaramyan, according to a presidential decree.
The dismissal of the head of the security apparatus comes with the continuation of the fighting, which recently broke out between the Armenian forces in the region and the Azerbaijani forces.
On the other hand, the Ministry of Defense in the Nagorno Karabakh region said today, Thursday, that it had recorded 30 more deaths in the ranks of its army, which raises the total number of deaths to 350 since the outbreak of fighting with Azerbaijani forces on September 27.
Meanwhile, Azerbaijan and forces of Armenian origin fought new clashes in the region and its surroundings, before the scheduled meeting in Geneva between the United States, France and Russia in an attempt to avoid a wider war in the southern Caucasus.
Azerbaijan said that the Armenian forces bombed the city of Ganja in the early hours of Thursday morning, noting that a civilian was killed in the Goranboy area.
She added that other villages in Azerbaijan were bombed by Armenian forces in the region, which belongs to Azerbaijan under international law, but is inhabited and governed by descendants of Armenian ethnicity.
The Azerbaijani authorities reported the killing of 30 civilians since the outbreak of fighting on September 27, adding that 143 civilians were injured, but they did not disclose their military losses.
On the other hand, France, the United States and Russia co-chair the Minsk group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which is mediating the Nagorno-Karabakh issue.
The three countries hope to persuade the warring parties to agree to a ceasefire after the bloodiest battles over the region in more than 25 years.
While Armenia announced that it will not send its foreign minister to the talks in Geneva, the foreign minister of Azerbaijan is expected to attend.
It is expected that the representatives of France, the United States and Russia will meet the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia in Moscow next Monday.
