Russian Federation offers to host Armenia-Azerbaijan talks after violence erupts

On Thursday, Erdogan said the OSCE Minsk Group which is responsible for negotiating a solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has no right to call for a ceasefire, and said that the organisation should demand that Armenia put an end to its "occupation" of the breakaway Azerbaijani region instead.

The president of Azerbaijan said Armenia's withdrawal from Nagorno-Karabakh was the sole condition to end the fighting. The fighting has already resulted in military casualties on both sides and numerous civilian casualties.

In Baku, officials denied that Armenian-backed separatists had regained control of territory lost in Sunday's fighting. Local people claim that Azerbaijan's drone planes dropped bombs at two places on the city.

Fighting has frequently occurred since.

Global concern over the rapidly escalating fight continued growing on Tuesday, which saw a third day of clashes between two former Soviet republics. There is a war and we are trying to provide as much as needed.

Their continuation would only increase the number of casualties - particularly civilian ones -, the material and human costs endured by both sides, and the threat of an uncontrolled escalation between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The two sides claim to have inflicted heavy losses on opposing forces and ignored repeated calls from global leaders to halt fighting that carries the threat of drawing in regional powers Turkey and Russian Federation. What's behind the Armenia-Azerbaijan clashes? Armenia has alleged that a Turkish fighter jet shot down its warplane. Moscow has a defence alliance with Armenia, which is the enclave's lifeline to the outside world, while Ankara backs its own ethnic Turkic kin in Azerbaijan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's top press aide called the claim "absolutely untrue".

Russian Federation is with Armenia in this war, but the revelations about Pakistan have shocked everyone.

Macron later told reporters in Brussels that "we have information today that we're confident in" that Syrian fighters have been deployed to Azerbaijan.

The Turkish president noted that Turkey supports "friendly and fraternal Azerbaijan in all possible ways", and would continue to do so. Pro-Armenian officials governing Nagorno-Karabakh introduced martial law and total mobilization of its male population.

Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev ruled out talks with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh on Tuesday and Azerbaijan's ally Turkey said on Thursday the three big powers should have no role in peacemaking.

So far, Turkey has more forcefully sided with Azerbaijan, whose defense spending significantly dwarfs Armenia's. But it has a formal security pact with Armenia, a military base in the country, and in recent years Azerbaijan has turned more toward Turkey.

On Monday, Azerbaijan declared partial military mobilisation amid the clashes. It has been revealed that the Pakistani Army is fighting a war on behalf of Azerbaijan.
