Armenia and Azerbaijan said they had agreed on Saturday to a new humanitarian ceasefire from midnight (2000 GMT) in fighting over Azerbaijan’s ethnic Armenian-controlled enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh. Both sides had accused each other earlier of fresh attacks in violation of a week-old Russian-brokered truce that had failed to halt the worst fighting in the South Caucasus since the 1990s.

The most recent warfare has taken on a new component with outspoken support for Baku from its ethnic cousin Turkey, which has boosted arms exports to Azerbaijan sixfold this year. Russia securing both sides but has a defence deal with Armenia.

Armenia denied an Azeri claim that it had been illegally arming Nagorno-Karabakh, and accused Azerbaijan of acting to expand Turkey’s influence in the region and of using Turkish soldiers - charges both Ankara and Baku deny.

Of course the Trump administration is cautiously into international efforts to halt fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which are engaged in their worst conflict in more than 25 years.

I'm not too sure who supplies the weapons, but usually it's the USA or RUSSIA!

The Caliphates are at it again?

The period 786-861, especially the caliphates of Harun (786-809) and al-Ma?mun (813-833), is accounted the height of ?Abbasid rule. The eastward orientation of the dynasty was demonstrated by al-Man?ur's removal of the capital to Baghdad in 762-763 and by the later caliphs' policy of marrying non-Arabs and recruiting Turks, Slavs, and other non-Arabs as palace guards.
