Azerbaijan said it had launched a military operation in the Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, killing 25 people and raising fears of an expanding conflict in a fragile region in which the interests of Russia, Turkey and Western countries are increasingly colliding.

Azerbaijan’s foreign ministry issued what appeared to be an ultimatum, declaring that only the “dissolution” of the unrecognized pro-Armenian government in the area would “achieve peace and stability.

” The breakaway authorities asked Azerbaijan’s leaders in Baku, the capital, to cease hostilities and begin talks. Azerbaijan responded by calling on the breakaway government to give up arms and dissolve itself by raising a white flag.
