PARIS, Sept 29 (Reuters) - France said on Tuesday it would call for talks among the 'Minsk Group' - which is led by Russia, France and the United States and mediates between Armenia and Azerbaijan - to try to resolve an escalating conflict between the two South Caucasus countries.

Dozens have been reported killed and hundreds wounded since fierce clashes erupted on Sunday between Azerbaijan and its breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, which is run by ethnic Armenians, in the worst spate of fighting since the 1990s.

"We will trigger in the coming days a co-ordination of the Minsk Group to clear up what happened, who is responsible and find a way out," an official at Macron's office told Reuters on Tuesday.
