Armenian President Armen Sarkissian appealed, Wednesday, Egypt, and Jordan to use their influence at the international level to stop the fighting between his country and Azerbaijan in the Karabakh region.

“Sarkissian sent an appeal to two Arab leaders,” a Russia Today report said.

The Armenian President’s office confirmed that Sarkissian sent a letter to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi stressing the absence of any military solution in Karabakh.

He also indicated the need to settle the dispute exclusively through peaceful negotiation.

The president of Armenia called on his Egyptian counterpart to "use his contacts and reputation to stop the bloodshed as soon as possible."

Sarkissian also sent another message to Jordan's King Abdullah II, saying that “It hurts to tell you that Azerbaijan launched a new attack on the Republic of Artsakh (meaning the unilaterally declared Karabakh Republic) and civilians.”

He added that “Dozens were killed and wounded between Civilians and military personnel on both sides as I write this letter.”

The Armenian president indicated that the Azerbaijani government has repeatedly announced, during the past months, that it is seeking to resolve the conflict militarily, appealing to the Jordanian king to benefit from his contacts and his reputation in the international arena in order to put an end to the bloodshed and the suffering of the people immediately.
