The foreign ministers from Armenia and Azerbaijan met in Moscow on Friday to seek a peace deal on the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Talks between Armenia's Edward Nalbandian and Azerbaijan's Elmar Mamedyarov facilitated by Russia were held behind close doors. They mark a new attempt to end the deadlock over the conflict in the sensitive Caucasus region.
Nagorno-Karabakh that is occupied by Armenia, is a part of Azerbaijan.
A ceasefire was agreed in 1994, but Nagorno-Karabakh and a vast surrounding area are under occupation.
Azerbaijan views the return of Karabakh as a priority.
Azerbaijan wants Armenian volunteers to be withdrawn from Karabakh, international peacekeepers deployed and over a million refugees allowed to return before substantial talks start on the future status of Karabakh.
All previous attempts to narrow the positions of the sides have collapsed.
