Armenia and Azerbaijan blame each other for renewed fighting near the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The area is recognized as part of Azerbaijan but is largely controlled by ethnic Armenians.

Two Karabakh troops and an Azerbaijani soldier were killed in a district overseen by Russian peacekeepers.

The latest violence sparked calls for calm from Russia, NATO and the European Union.

Both sides accuse each other of violating the 2020 ceasefire.

So can the truce last and prevent another conflict?
