A new ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh in jeopardy, Armenia, Azerbaijan ready for talks

On October 21, Armenia and Azerbaijan truce was found to be in jeopardy after a new ceasefire in the mountain territory of Nagorno-Karabakh region, with Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces reporting shelling and heavy fighting. 

Amid accusation on both the sides, while Azerbaijan said it had neutralised a missile fired by Armenian side at an oil pipeline in Azerbaijan on October 18, Armenia denied firing it.  

 Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev have said in separate interviews that they were ready to come to Moscow for talks. It must be noted that Russia has been the major driver of diplomacy between the ex-Soviet enemies.
