Azerbaijan accuses Armenia of mining supply lines for its army and of shelling. Baku considers Yerevan responsible for the escalation
The Government of Armenia officially appealed to Russia, the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the UN Security Council in connection with Azerbaijan's actions in Nagorno-Karabakh. This was reported by the Public Television of Armenia.
On the night of September 13, a meeting of the Armenian Security Council chaired by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was held, during which further steps were discussed to counter the “aggressive actions of Azerbaijan against sovereign Armenian territory”.
Then Yerevan announced that it would ask Moscow to apply the provisions of the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance, as well as turn to the CSTO and the UN Security Council.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that Washington is concerned about reports of hostilities on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, including information about attacks on settlements and civilian infrastructure in Armenia.
“As we have long made clear , there can be no military solution to the conflict. We urge an immediate cessation of all hostilities,” — the message says.

Earlier, the Armenian Defense Ministry stated that after midnight, Azerbaijani troops began shelling the border settlements in the south-east of the republic— Sotka, Goris and Jermuk— of artillery pieces and large-caliber weapons.
Pashinyan had a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which he called Baku's actions unacceptable. Pashinyan's press service noted that the leaders agreed to maintain operational contact.
Azerbaijan, in turn, reported that the Armenian military mined the supply lines of the Azerbaijani army at night, fired at several positions of the Azerbaijani army, because of which people died and military infrastructure was damaged.
The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry called the data on the invasion of Armenia absurd, blaming Yerevan for the escalation. The ministry stressed that the Azerbaijani army is “carrying out local countermeasures and neutralizing firing points.”
