An Azerbaijani soldier was killed on Tuesday as a result of violation of the cease fire by the Armenian side according to Azerbaijani military sources. The incident happened in the Nakhchivan sector of the border with Armenia. The victim was a 19 year old conscript from Terter Region, Zaur Hasanli. There is no comment on the incident yet by the Armenian side. Both sides in the conflict regularly accuse each other of violating the cease fire that has been in affect for twenty years.
"Armenia will focus on the expansion of economic cooperation in the BSEC region, and will promote the agenda through existing mechanisms in the upcoming six months", Foreign Minister Nalbandian told the organisation's Ministerial Council at its meeting in Kiev.
