MADRID (Reuters) - Spain’s Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez is concerned about the recent escalation in hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan and called for a ceasefire during a press conference on Monday.

Her comments come after 21 people were killed earlier on Monday during a second day of heavy clashes over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
