Since then, clashes have been a regular occurence between Azerbaijani troops and the rebels, but also between Baku and Yerevan.On Sunday, Azerbaijan's defence ministry said it launched a "counter offensive to suppress Armenia's combat activity and ensure the safety of the population."The enclave's separatist authorities claimed its troops shot down two Azerbaijani helicopters and three drones. Azerbaijan says it has just lost one helicopter.Talks to resolve one of the worst conflicts to emerge from the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union have been largely stalled since a 1994 ceasefire agreement.France, Russia and the United States have mediated peace efforts as the "Minsk Group" but the last big push for a peace deal collapsed in 2010. - 'Mobilisation' - From the announcement of the first clashes, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Nagorny Karabakh authorities declare martial law and military mobilisation.Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose country is a firm supporter of Azerbaijan and has poor relations with Armenia, promises Baku support.Yerevan and the Nagorny Karabakh authorities denounce Turkish "meddling" and accuse Ankara of providing weapons, military specialists and pilots of drones and planes to Azerbaijan. Pashinyan says "we are on the brink of a full-scale war in the South Caucasus, which might have unpredictable consequences". Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev promises to win against Armenian and separatist forces. - International concern - International reaction is quick, with former Soviet-era master Moscow calling for an immediate ceasefire and talks between the arch-rivals.The European Union warns regional powers not to interfere in the fighting and condemns a "serious escalation" that threatens regional stability.The United States urges "both sides to cease hostilities immediately".Iran says it is ready to launch talks between the two neighbouring sides. - Positions lost - By late Sunday, Azerbaijan says it has retaken a handful of villages under Armenian control, something denied by Yerevan.Azerbaijani forces also capture from rebels a strategic mountain, the Murovdag peak, in Karabakh.Azerbaijan declares martial law and a curfew in the capital Baku and several other cities. - Erdogan weighs in - On the 28, Turkey's Erdogan demands Armenia put an end to its "occupation" of Nagorny Karabakh and vows complete support for Baku.UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says he is "extremely concerned over the fresh resumption of hostilities".The authorities of Nagorny Karabakh say they have regained territory lost the day before, while Azerbaijan says it has made advances, using rockets, artillery and air power.On Monday evening Armenia's defence ministry says Azerbaijani forces launched a "massive offensive at the Karabakh frontline's southern and north-eastern sectors". - UN Security Council meets - By Tuesday, the third day of fighting, the total number of confirmed deaths has risen to 98 -- including 84 separatist fighters and 14 civilians. But each side claims to have killed hundreds of enemy troops.The UN Security Council schedules emergency talks Tuesday behind closed doors on the crisis, at the request of Germany and France, according to diplomats.US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calls for an end to fighting and a return to negotiations "as quickly as possible".kd/jmy/cdw
