    Fighting continued in and around the contested Nagorno-Karabakh enclave Saturday as the leaders of Azerbaijan and Armenia set seemingly impossible terms for agreeing to calls from the leaders of the U.S., France and Russia for a truce. “Cease-fire ok, but on what conditions? Conditions must be that they withdraw from the territories,” Aliyev said in a website statement, referring to Armenian forces. “We heard it many times, we don’t have time to wait another 30 years. The conflict must be resolved now.” Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in a national address, “Victory and only victory is the way we see to end this war.” Earlier in the day, he said Armenia is ready to accept a truce but only if Turkish forces leave the area, AFP reported. Ankara backs Azerbaijan but denies it has any military presence there. Officials reported shelling and rocket fire in and around Stepanakert, the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenia has controlled the enclave and surrounding regions — all internationally recognized to be within Azerbaijan’s borders — since a war in the early 1990s. Azerbaijan accused Armenian forces of shelling villages nearby Saturday. The latest battles began a week ago and have provoked calls from the presidents of Russia, France and the U.S. for a cease-fire.
