Large-scale fighting over disputed areas between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the former Soviet Union has entered its third day, killing 100 people on both sides. Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has a strong influence in the region, called on both sides to call for a ceasefire, saying a stop to the fighting was urgent.
Large-scale fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the autonomous province of Nagorno-Karabakh, located in western Azerbaijan, flared up on the 27th, bringing the total death toll to 100, including 16 civilians, in the three days leading up to the 29th.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has a strong influence in the region, held his second telephone meeting with Armenian Prime Minister Pasignan on 29 September, calling on both sides to call for a ceasefire, saying there was an urgent need to stop the fighting after expressing serious concern.
In this battle, Turkey, a major regional power, has shown full support for Azerbaijan.
In response, Armenian Prime Minister Pasignan on 29th accused Turkey of being “already in Azerbaijan’s territory and leading military operations.”
Meanwhile, Azerbaijan’s President Aliyev has continued to rebuke Turkey’s developments, including a rebuttal on Tuesday that “Turkey does not participate in or do not need to participate in any form of fighting.”
