Azerbaijan and Armenia on Wednesday accused each other of launching provocation in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, in violation of a cease-fire agreement between them.
Armenia and Azerbaijan have been at loggerheads over the mountainous region of Nagorno-Karabakh since 1988. Peace talks have been held since 1994, when a cease-fire was agreed on, but there have been sporadic minor clashes since then. A new round of armed conflict broke out along the contact line on Sept. 27, 2020, before Russia brokered a new cease-fire agreement on Nov. 9, 2020.
