Azerbaijan Announces ‘Unilateral Ceasefire’ In Nagorno-Karabakh

Azerbaijan has announced a ‘unilateral ceasefire’ in fighting with Armenia, in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh, after violent clashes broke out earlier this week.

Azerbaijan has announced a ‘unilateral ceasefire’ in fighting with Armenian forces over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

A defence ministry spokesman said the Azeris were acting in response to international calls to halt violence.

Firing had continued into Sunday, after clashes left 30 soldiers dead and caused civilian casualties.

Nagorno-Karabakh has been in the hands of ethnic-Armenian separatists since a war that ended in 1994.
