On 27 September, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other of carrying out provocations in the area of Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian-majority land that proclaimed independence from then Soviet Republic od Azerbaijan in 1991 and has since sought international recognition.

 

Yerevan and the Nagorno-Karabakh republic immediately took the decision to declare martial law and a full-scale mobilisation. Baku, for its part, declared partial martial law and shortly thereafter announced partial mobilisation. Armenia, Azerbaijan and the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh have all reported casualties, both military and civilian.

 

The international community has urged the sides to the decades-old conflict to cease fire and return to the negotiating table within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group.
