The danger of further escalation of tension in the region is of serious concern, CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas said in a statement.

The comments come after military clashes on Armenian-Azerbaijani line of contact on July 28, which saw three Armenian servicemen killed and four wounded.

The Secretary General I expressed deep condolences to the families of the victims and wished the wounded a speedy recovery.

“We consider the use of force unacceptable. Only political and diplomatic methods should be used to settle contradictions,. I welcome the efforts of the Russian Federation aimed at stabilizing the situation in the region,” Zas stated.
