For days, the international community has been calling for talks on ending decades of conflict between the two former Soviet republics.
On Sunday, official Baku announced that Armenia shelled the positions of the Azerbaijani army, and Yerevan claimed that the Azerbaijani armed forces launched an offensive towards Nagorno-Karabakh, shelling the surrounding settlements.
Both sides reported casualties, including civilians. Both Armenia and Azerbaijan have declared a state of war and military mobilization.
