Azeri Troops Clash With Armenia Forces as Foreign Ministers Meet

Azerbaijan said its troops clashed with Armenian forces near the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region as the countries’ foreign ministers prepared to meet.

An Armenian unit attacked Azeri positions this morning and was forced to retreat after a brief exchange of fire, the Defense Ministry in the Azeri capital, Baku, said on its website. Foreign Ministers Eduard Nalbandian of Armenia and Elmar Mammadyarov of Azerbaijan will meet today in Paris to continue talks after the two nations’ presidents met in November in Vienna for the first time in two years.
