Azerbaijan’s foreign minister will meet international mediators in the country’s conflict with Armenia, Baku said Wednesday, as deadly fighting over the Nagorno-Karabakh region entered a second week.

The foreign ministry said a Thursday “working visit to Geneva” will see Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov meet leaders of the OSCE’s Minsk group, which is jointly chaired by diplomats from France, Russia, and the US.

Clashes between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces have displaced half of the population of the Nagorno-Karabakh region as Russian President Vladimir Putin urged on Wednesday an end to a “tragedy” that shows no sign of abating.

Putin on Wednesday called for the fighting to stop, saying the deadliest fighting in more than 25 years between ethnic Armenian and Azeri forces was a tragedy.
