Russian President and his French counterpart call for an immediate ceasefire in Azerbaijan-Armenia conflict

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron have called for an immediate ceasefire in the ongoing conflict between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces over the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Reiterating the same, the Kremlin on October 1 said, “Vladimir Putin and Emmanuel Macron called on the warring sides to halt fire completely and as soon as possible, de-escalate tensions and show maximum restraint.”

As clashes over the disputed Nagorny Karabakh region continued for fourth day, Armenia and Azerbaijan forces, on September 30, vowed to continue fighting, rejecting the international calls for negotiations  between the two.

The two leaders showed their “readiness” in resolving the issue and to see a statement made on behalf of the co-chairs of the Minsk Group – Russia, France and the U.S. – that would call for an “immediate” end to the fighting and start of talks.
