– The UN Security Council called for an end to any confrontation in Nagorno-Karabakh. UN Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Miroslav Jenca called the ceasefire announced in Karabakh “unsteady.” Armenia called for a UN-mandated peacekeeping mission to be sent to the region. Azerbaijan, in turn, stated that the discussion of this issue “is an obvious violation of the requirements of the UN Charter on respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states and non-interference in the internal affairs of countries.”
