Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan. The fighting and shelling has killed hundreds of people - both combatants and civilians - and marks the biggest escalation of a decades-old conflict over the region in more than a quarter-century.
Several hundred people have been killed since September 27 in fighting involving drones, warplanes, heavy artillery, tanks and missiles, raising fears of a humanitarian crisis and concerns about the security of oil and gas pipelines in Azerbaijan.
The meeting was attended by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and the ombudsmen for human rights of Armenia Arman Tatoyan and the unrecognized republic Artak Beglaryan.
A new ceasefire agreed between Armenia and Azerbaijan to halt fighting over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh was again failing to hold on Monday as both sides accused each other of fresh attacks.
The text - which is expected to be agreed between council members this week - will also call on Armenia and Azerbaijan to resume negotiations facilitated by the Minsk Group.
Armenia has "become a regional and a global problem", Şentop said, noting: "Deadlock in the Caucasus will continue as long as Armenia's occupation in Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas continues". After more than 10 hours of talks, they announced a cease-fire deal, which was violated minutes after it took force.
The Armenian prime minister refused to adhere to the clause 3 of the four-clause ceasefire agreement mediated by Russian Federation in Moscow on October 10 which calls on both states to kick off substantive negotiations through the mediation of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs upon the basic principles of the settlement, also known as the Madrid principles. Israel and Azerbaijan are major trading partners, and it is estimated that Israel supplies Baku with 60 percent of its arms. "It is unacceptable", Lavrov said.
Shushan Stepanyan, the Armenian defense ministry spokeswoman, said in a statement Monday that Azerbaijan overnight targeted civilian facilities in the communities of Martuni, Urekan, Ishkhanadzor, Aygehovit and Vurgavan.
"I hope that we will reach an agreement on such a mechanism in the nearest future", Lavrov told a news conference in Moscow on Monday.
Pashinian said he was "prepared to make all the necessary efforts" to resolve the conflict peacefully, including going to Moscow and talking with Aliyev.
"To oppose the advance of Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh is also to oppose the expansion of Turkish Islam across Europe".
