The issue of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was discussed at the meeting of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) Council of Foreign Ministers, Sergey Lebedev, executive secretary of the CIS, said April 8.

He made the remarks at a press conference on results of the CIS Council of Foreign Ministers' meeting in Moscow Apr.8.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov spoke out about the meetings in the South Caucasus, said Lebedev.

Azerbaijan's Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov and Armenia's Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandyan also presented their positions, he added.

All of them expressed satisfaction with the cessation of hostilities, said Lebedev adding that during the meeting the CIS foreign ministers expressed their hope that the parties of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict will return to the negotiating table in order to finally solve this difficult conflict.

On the night of April 2, 2016, all the frontier positions of Azerbaijan were subjected to heavy fire from the Armenian side, which used large-caliber weapons, mortars and grenade launchers. The armed clashes resulted in deaths and injuries among the Azerbaijani population. Azerbaijan responded with a counter-attack, which led to liberation of several strategic heights and settlements.

Military operations were stopped on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian armies on Apr. 5 at 12:00 (UTC/GMT + 4 hours) with the consent of the sides, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry earlier said. Ignoring the agreement, the Armenian side again started violating the ceasefire.
