(Reuters) -Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan mentioned 105 Armenian service personnel had died in clashes with Azerbaijan over the past two days, the Interfax information company reported on Wednesday.

Armenia and Azerbaijan blame one another for the most recent flare-up within the South Caucasus.

In a speech to Armenia’s parliament, Pashinyan mentioned Azerbaijan had “established management” over some components of Armenian territory because of the most recent army confrontation, the TASS information company reported.

“If we are saying that Azerbaijan has carried out aggression towards Armenia, it implies that they’ve managed to determine management over some territories,” he mentioned, in keeping with TASS.

Armenia had reported 49 fatalities on Tuesday, including that the quantity was more likely to rise. Azerbaijan reported 50 fatalities amongst its service personnel.

Pashinyan resisted calls from the opposition to introduce martial regulation in Armenia – because the nation did two years in the past throughout a bloody six-week struggle with Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh area – saying he didn’t but assume it crucial.

The combating that broke out on Tuesday is the worst between the ex-Soviet republics since 2020.
