Russia said Tuesday it had negotiated a ceasefire between ex-Soviet Armenia and Azerbaijan, after fresh border clashes between the historic rivals left dozens dead.

“We expect that an agreement reached as a result of Russian mediation on a ceasefire from 9:00 am Moscow time (0600 GMT) on September 13 this year will be carried out in full,” the foreign ministry in Moscow said in a statement, adding that it was “extremely concerned” by the uptick in fighting.
