Karabakh: The presidents of Russia, the United States and France called Thursday for a ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, urging Armenia and Azerbaijan to commit to talks without delay or preconditions.

In a statement, French President Emmanuel Macron, Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump said: “We call for an immediate cessation of hostilities between the relevant military forces.”

“We also call on the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan to commit without delay to resuming substantive negotiations,” said the leaders.

The statement added that such talks should be “in good faith and without preconditions” and be held under the auspices of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group co-chairs.

The Minsk group has on occasion overseen summits between Armenian and Azeri leaders but has failed to find any lasting resolution to the conflict.

Both Armenian and Azerbaijan for decades, have been locked in a territorial dispute over the mountainous region of Nagorno-Karabakh since 1988.

In a latest update, on Sunday, clashes erupted between them, where the two blamed each other for sparking fierce conflicts that have since caused nearly 100 confirmed deaths. Deadly fighting had flared in 2016 and earlier this year.
