Armenia, Azerbaijan clash leaves seven troops dead


Seven Armenian soldiers were killed in clashes between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces during the last week, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said in a statement on Sept. 5.
Clashes between the two began in 1988 over the rights on the Nagorno-Karabakh territory, and later evolved into a full-fledged war in 1992.

Since the end of the war in 1994, Armenian and Azerbaijani delegations have held talks over the status of Nagorno-Karabakh under the supervision of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s Minsk Group.

Although a ceasefire was signed in 1994, clashes regularly occur along the border.
