Egypt has welcomed a fresh ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan, urging both parties to commit to the agreement to achieve peace and the aspired humanitarian objectives.

In an official statement on Sunday, Egypt’s foreign ministry hailed the agreement, which was brokered by Russia, stressing that negotiations are the means to reach a sustainable settlement for the conflict in accordance with international legitimacy and efforts by the OSCE Minsk Group.

The humanitarian ceasefire, which went into force on Saturday, was reached following talks brokered by Moscow to give the green light to ethnic Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabah and the Azeri army to swap prisoners and bodies of people killed in clashes over the enclave.

Clashes broke out on 27 September and resulted in the death of 500 people in a renewed fighting deemed the worst since a 1994 ceasefire that ended a war that killed at least 30,000 people.
