Russia, US and France step up efforts to halt Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

International monitors from Russia, France and the US were expected to meet Azerbaijan’s foreign minister behind closed doors today in an attempt to stop the war with Armenian separatists over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Both Armenia and Azerbaijan accuse each other of using banned cluster munitions in the conflict, which is raging in and around the breakaway territory.

Hundreds have been killed since clashes began at the end of last month.
