Armenia's government gave the go-ahead Thursday to legislation that calls for recognizing the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh, a separatist region which is officially part of neighboring Azerbaijan.Clashes in April marked the worst violence since a separatist war ended in 1994, leaving Nagorno-Karabakh under the control of local ethnic Armenian forces and the Armenian military. Armenian forces also occupy several areas outside the Karabakh region.Azerbaijan condemned the Armenian initiative, which it said was aimed at scuttling international peace talks.
