Russia and Iran have joined efforts to prevent a new war between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces over Nagorno-Karabakh, where both sides have accused the other of violating the ceasefire.

The Russian and Iranian Foreign Ministers were meeting with their Azerbaijani counterpart in Baku on Thursday.

Earlier, fighting that erupted over the weekend has killed at least sixty four people and is the worst outbreak of violence since a separatist war ended in 1994.
