Armenia, Azerbaijan urged to settle conflict diplomatically

Description:

Armenia and Azerbaijan continue to accuse each other of ceasefire violations in the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh
Russia is now calling for an end to fighting - and a settlement through diplomatic means.
That's as Armenia's prime minister says forces will not back down, despite having retreated from some frontline positions.
Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from Goris in Armenia, its closest town to the embattled enclave.


Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed on Saturday to a new humanitarian ceasefire from midnight in fighting over Azerbaijan's ethnic Armenian-controlled enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, both countries said in identical statements.
Armenian and Azerbaijani officials were headed to Russia on Friday for talks aimed at ending the worst violence in the Nagorno-Karabakh region since 1994. FRANCE 24 correspondent Nick Holdsworth says there is growing international hope of a truce.
Hopes that a Russian-brokered ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan might hold were further dashed Sunday, with both sides accusing the other of intense shelling on civilian areas and escalating two weeks of fierce clashes.
