Armenia and Azerbaijan have been long-standing antagonists over the debated Nagorno-Karabakh region. While it is considered a part of Azerbaijan by the international community, Armenia stakes claim on the land since the traditional inhabitants are Christian Armenians and Muslim Turks.

Azerbaijan and the ethnic Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh said there were attacks from both sides at several directions along the line of contact that divides them.

This was now has spread beyond the borders of the enclave. Now its posing a threat into all out war between the former Soviet republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia.

On Tuesday the Armenia`s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan spoke to the Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and said he was not at this point considering asking for help under a post-Soviet security treaty but did not rule out doing so.

Any move to all-out war could drag in Russia and Turkey, which is a close ally of Azerbaijan. He said he and Putin had not discussed the possibility of Russian military intervention in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
