The military conflict in Karabakh continues for the twelfth day after several explosions rocked Stepanakert, the capital of the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Republic of Artsakh) on Thursday.
Russia, the US, France, Germany, and other countries have called for a return to negotiations. Turkey, meanwhile, has stated it will back Azerbaijan "both in talks and combat", claiming that Armenia must leave the "occupied territories".
The predominantly Armenian-populated Nagorno-Karabakh region declared its independence from Azerbaijan in 1991, which led to a major conflict between Yerevan and Baku that lasted until 1994 when the sides agreed to start talks on the dispute.
