Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held two separate meetings with his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts in Moscow on Wednesday to discuss the implementation of a cease-fire in the Upper Karabakh region, Anadolu News Agency reported.

"During the talks, urgent issues related to the implementation of previously reached agreements on a cease-fire in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone and the creation of conditions for its sustainable settlement were discussed," the ministry said in a statement, following Lavrov's meeting with Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and Jeyhun Bayramov.

Over the past 10 days, two humanitarian cease-fires in fight over Nagorno-Karabakh failed to hold. A new humanitarian cease-fire was agreed on last Saturday, taking effect at midnight.

Wednesday's peace talks in Moscow followed a day after telephone contact between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron.

"Vladimir Putin informed his French counterpart about the steps that are being taken to prevent further escalation of hostilities and resume talks to settle the Nagorno-Karabakh problem by political and diplomatic means as soon as possible," Tass quoted the Kremlin press service as saying Tuesday.

"It was stressed that the conflicting parties must observe the October 10 and October 17 agreements on cessation of fire."

"The leaders stressed their readiness to continue close coordination between Russia and France as co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group and within the United Nations Security Council," the Kremlin said.

On Friday, Armenia and Azerbaijan's foreign ministers are due to meet U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Washington.

Armenian PM Pashinian says diplomatic solution for Nagorno-Karabakh not possible

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian has ruled out a diplomatic solution for the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis, saying that there will be no such solution for a long time.

"Everything that is diplomatically acceptable to the Armenian side ... is not acceptable to Azerbaijan anymore," Pashinian said in a video message on Facebook.

He called on the citizens to volunteer for the Karabakh front.

Pashinian said Armenia should fight until an acceptable diplomatic solution is found.

Pashinian's statements came after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held two separate meetings with his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts in Moscow to discuss the implementation of a cease-fire in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
