Fighting Escalates Between Azerbaijan, Armenia
The Caucasus is on the brink. A third day of clashes over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh between the nations’ forces yesterday killed at least 13 people, bringing the death toll since Friday up to 46. Armenia’s president warned a “large-scale war” is possible over the mountainous area his country has controlled since the end of a six-year war in 1994. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to back Azerbaijan “to the end,” while U.S., Russian and German leaders are calling for an end to the fighting.
