    Shelling continued in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region on Friday after almost two weeks of fighting over the tiny enclave in the South Caucuses continued. In Moscow, foreign ministers for Armenia and Azerbaijan sat down for talks, trying to resolve recent escalation. Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev said Friday that he was ready to resume talks, but would not make concessions for Armenia. Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said despite recent efforts by several countries, including the U.S., Canada and Russia, to achieve a ceasefire, the efforts were bound to fail unless the countries ensured a withdrawal of Armenian forces from the enclave. As a result of the conflict, Azeri authorities say just over 400 displaced people have been staying in a school in Barda after fleeing the clashes, with one woman saying she fled after a shell landed on her family’s home.
