MOSCOW (Reuters) - Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday that fighting between ethnic Armenian and Azeri forces in the Nagorno-Karabakh region should stop immediately and that the conflict should be resolved through diplomatic means.

Since a Russian-brokered truce came into force on Saturday, the two sides have accused each other of serious violations and attacks against civilians.
