On Friday, Russia hosted talks between the foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia, who agreed to suspend all military action starting on Saturday at noon local time. The ceasefire was announced on humanitarian grounds, to allow for the exchange of prisoners and for the bodies of people killed during the hostilities to receive proper burials.
Turkey notably did not join international calls to stop the fighting and instead cheered on Azerbaijan, saying it was within its rights to try and resolve the situation through force.
