Azeri president says Nagorno-Karabakh ceasefire is not stable

“Recent developments in the region on the line of conflict show the ceasefire is not stable, it is fragile. The status quo is not acceptable,” he said at a news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

A ceasefire was agreed in April to stop the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh becoming an all-out war.
