It required an 11th-hour intervention from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but finally, hours late, Turkey and Armenia have signed a historic peace agreement ending a century of hostility.

Turkey’s Foreign Minister and his Armenian counterpart signed the Swiss-mediated deal in Zurich alongside Clinton. The peace accord establishes diplomatic ties and opens borders.
