  • US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is meeting the foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia in an effort to end nearly a month of bloodshed.

  • Fighting continued in several areas off Nagorno Karabakh on Friday, hours before talks were due to start in Washington.

  • Deadly clashes in the mountain region have seen over 5000 people killed in recent weeks, according to figures from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

  • The collapse of two Russian brokered ceasefires had also dimmed hopes of a quick end to fighting that broke out over Nagorno Karabakh, a breakaway territory which is within Azerbaijan but controlled by ethnic Armenians.

  • Pompeo will hold separate talks with the respective foreign ministers, although it's not clear if they'll meet each other directly.

  • Earlier this week, he said he hoped for a diplomatic solution on the right path forward could be found, with Putin expressing his desire for Washington toe act in unison with Russia.

  • However, the Armenian and Azeri leadership have both cast doubts on any peace arrangement being agreed anytime soon.
