"Lavrov, who mediated the negotiations in Moscow, announced the ceasefire after 10 hours of talks with his Armenian and Azeri counterparts. He also said Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to start talks on the settlement of the conflict."
"A war stained by ethnic blood-letting ensued, killing 30,000 people and leaving about one million citizens, mostly Azerbaijanis, displaced. When Russia brokered a ceasefire in 1994, Armenians remained in charge of Nagorno-Karabakh. For almost 30 years, peace talks have made little progress, and Azerbaijanis have nursed the injustice of losing their lands to what they see as an occupation."
