The ministry had called on both countries to engage into negotiation and reach a ceasefire.

The Armenian and Azerbaijani forces have engaged into clashes, in which tens of people were killed and more than 100 were wounded. 

Many worlds’ countries including the US called for the immediate halt in fighting.
