Azerbaijan and Armenia have been locked in a decades-old dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, an enclave recognized as Azerbaijani territory by the international community but mostly populated by ethnic Armenians.
They fought a war there after the breakup of the Soviet Union and again two years ago when Azerbaijan reclaimed broad swaths of land in a six-week conflict that led to over 6,600 deaths.
