How fragile is the ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “How fragile is the ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

The region of Nagorno-Karabakh has been disputed between Azerbaijan and Armenia for many years.

It’s led to several incidents of violence – including last year’s conflict that killed thousands of people.

That’s despite international efforts to bring peace to the region.

Armenia is now asking Russia to deploy troops along its border with Azerbaijan.

Prime Minister Nicol Pashinyan says it’s the only solution to allow border demarcation without further violence.

But will Moscow send soldiers?

Stanislav Pritchin – Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Post-Soviet Studies.
