ROME (Reuter) - The collapse of talks aimed at ending fighting in the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh was averted at the last minute when Azerbaijan and Turkey decided to return to the negotiating table.

The two delegations stormed out of the 11-nation talks yesterday but later agreed to shelve a dispute with the meeting's Italian presidency which delegates said could have arisen from a translation error.

Time was running out for an accord which would allow a full peace conference to be convened in the Belarussian capital of Minsk under the auspices of the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe.
