Both sides expressed serious concern over the conflict, saying that regional states, especially neighbors of Azerbaijan and Armenia, can play an important role in creating the right conditions for the parties to return to the negotiating table rapidly.

Lavrov stressed that Russia, both in its national capacity and within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group Chairs, will continue its mediatory efforts to support settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through political and diplomatic means.

Armenia and Azerbaijan resumed clashes on the border between the two countries on Sunday, September 27, blaming each other for the violence.

We deplore the loss of human lives and extend our condolences to the families of those killed and injured.

We call for an immediate cessation of hostilities between the relevant military forces.

We also call on the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan to commit without delay to resuming substantive negotiations, in good faith and without preconditions, under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs.
