The mediation of the United States of America to establish a truce in Nagorno-Karabakh did not help. The efforts of the international community have failed, said Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
“I would like to state that the efforts of the international community, this time with the mediation of the United States, to establish a ceasefire regime have failed,” Pashinyan wrote on Twitter.
I would like to state that the efforts of the international community, this time brokered by the #UnitedStates, to establish a ceasefire, have failed. As a result of continuous shelling by Azerbaijan, civilians were killed and wounded in #Artsakh today.@realDonaldTrump

He also noted that civilians were killed and wounded in Artsakh [Nagorno-Karabakh] as a result of incessant shelling from Azerbaijan.
Earlier it was reported that starting from 08:00 on October 26 local time of Nagorno-Karabakh, in the region, a new humanitarian truce was declared. 2On October 4, Foreign Ministers of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and Azerbaijan, Jeyhun Bayramov, met with US Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Bigoon and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, reaffirming their commitment to upholding the humanitarian truce, which was agreed on October 10 in Moscow.
However, on Monday, October 26, almost immediately after the start of another truce in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan announced a violation of the agreement by the armed forces of Armenia.
Baku launched an operation in Nagorno-Karabakh, seeking to restore sovereignty over the region. The coming days will show whether Azerbaijan will be able to achieve its goal. In the meantime, the Azerbaijani army took control of six settlements in the region and several strategic heights in the conflict zone.
