US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo began talks on Friday with his counterparts from Armenia and Azerbaijan in a new international bid to halt an eruption of fighting, AFP reports. At the State Department, Pompeo met separately with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov and Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan. The foreign ministries on both sides have ruled out a three-way meeting in Washington. Ahead of the talks, Pompeo kept expectations in check, noting that previous ceasefire bids have not held.
