Russian President calls Turkey for talks to end fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh

As Azerbaijan and Armenia continued to accuse each other of shelling civilians in and around the mountain enclave, Russian President Vladimir Putin on October 29 called on Turkey for its involvement in talks to put to an end, the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh region.

“Armenia had fired at its military units and civilian settlements along the frontline,” said Azerbaijan’s Defence ministry while Armenia’s Foreign Ministry said “Stepanakert and the towns of Shushi and Martakert had been under continuous attack.”

“The first stage is to stop the fighting, stop the killing,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin, adding further, “Many countries, including Turkey and a host of European states should work together to find consensus.”

Leading the peace talks in the matter, the OSCE Minsk Group is due to meet the Armenian and Azeri foreign ministers in Geneva on October 30.
