MOSCOW—Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday urged the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan to ensure a halt to deadly clashes Nagorno-Karabakh after a truce was agreed, reported Agence France Presse.

“Putin called on both sides to urgently ensure a complete cessation of military hostilities and respect for the ceasefire,” the Kremlin said in a statement after Putin spoke to the two presidents separately by telephone.

Putin voiced “serious concern” after four days of fighting killed at least 64 people in the worst outbreak of violence over the territory since the 1994 cease fire agreement
.
Putin also underlined the need to restart internationally moderated peace negotiations that have failed to definitively end the bitter feud over the past two decades.
