Armenia, Azerbaijan agree to ceasefire from midnight said Lavrov

Nagorno-Karabakh, Oct 10 : Armenia and Azerbaijan have agreed to a ceasefire from midnight on October 10, and to start dialogue over disputed region Nagorno-Karabakh, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

After nearly two weeks of war that killed several people from both sides in the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, the breakthrough comes in Moscow as a relief for the two nations.

Mr Lavrov said the Red Cross would act as an intermediary in the humanitarian operation.

At least 300 people have been reported killed in the war, which broke out on September 27,Aljazeera reported

Under international law, Nagorno-Karabakh is recognised as part of Azerbaijan, but Armenia never recognised the same and both the nations had a history of clashes and limited war over the region.
