Baku and Yerevan agree to halt fighting in occupied Karabakh region in a ceasefire deal that Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev calls a clear defeat of Armenia.
Two crew members were killed and a third was injured when the helicopter was shot down in Armenia near the border with Azerbaijan, Moscow says.
President Ilham Aliyev says his country's troops have freed 23 more villages from Armenian occupation, a day after liberating the key town of Shusha in landlocked region.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev announced in a televised message that the strategic city of Shusha, which remained in the illegal occupation of Armenia for more than two and a half decades, had been retaken by Azerbaijan's army.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres hopes the session will be "an opportunity for member states to move forward together."
Fresh clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia erupted on September 27, and since then Armenia has repeatedly attacked Azerbaijani civilians and forces, even violating three humanitarian ceasefires since October 10.
Mediators from France, Russia and the US, known as the "Minsk Group," has said in a statement they had urged the sides to fully implement a previously agreed ceasefire.
The war between Armenia and Azerbaijan will be determined by the fate of the two strategic towns.
Azerbaijani troops neutralise Armenian forces in Aghdara, Hojavend, Gubadli fronts and get closer to the town of Shusha, whose capture would mark a turning point in Nagorno-Karabakh fighting.
Earlier in the day, Baku shot down two Armenian warplanes, Azerbaijan's Defence Ministry said.
The Azerbaijani Defence Ministry has said the Armenian army opened fire on the cities of Goranboy, Tartar, and Barda with cannon balls and missiles.
Many Azerbaijanis had started to lose hope that they would ever return back to their homes, now the renewed conflict with Armenia could be about to change that.
