Armenia and Azerbaijan agree ceasefire after talks


Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh starting at noon on Saturday following two weeks of heavy fighting that marked the worst outbreak of hostilities in the separatist region in a quarter century. The agreement came a day after Azerbaijan's defence ministry shared footage claiming its troops entered the village of Talish, which is in Nagorno-Karabakh. Abandoned checkpoints and military barracks could be seen in the video, as well as military equipment scattered along a road. Azerbaijan and Armenian foreign ministers said in a statement that the truce was intended to exchange prisoners and recover the dead, adding that specific details would be agreed on later.
