Rome (Reuter) - Negotiators trying to end fighting in the former Soviet enclave of Nagorny Karabakh suspended their talks yesterday. The setback was a severe blow to hopes of a ceasefire in the region where Azeris launched an offensive at the weekend. 'We had a number of discussions today but we got no satisfaction, so the talks have broken up,' said Christian Der Stepanian, the head of the Armenian delegation. The talks became deadlocked when the Armenians insisted the other participants condemn the Azeri offensive.
