Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict: President Ilham Aliyev begins truce talks as UN urges restraint.

Russia is hosting talks with the Azeri and Armenian foreign ministers throughout the weekend, a day after France, Russia and the United States discussed the conflict at the United Nations.

There are regional fears of an ongoing process without securing peace for the region as Azerbaijan is supported by Turkey, while Armenia has a defence pact with Russia so the truce talks are seen as a big compromise.

Azerbaijan's President told Sky News his country is engaged in a 'patriotic war' - to recapture territory it had lost in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
