MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday said Moscow would continue working with Turkey to stop the military confrontation in Nagorno-Karabakh from unravelling, the RIA news agency cited him as saying.

Russia is considering an Iranian proposal for ending the conflict in the mountain enclave between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces after three ceasefires failed to halt fighting that is now in its sixth week.
