The President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, said that in September Baku will start resettling the population in the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The majority of the capital’s Armenian population fled after Azeri Forces took full control of the former breakaway area last year.

The mountainous region, whose capital Khankendi is known in Armenia as Stepanakert, was captured by Azeri Forces in September 2023 in a lightning attack, displacing at least 100,000 Armenians living there.

Armenia accused Azerbaijan of ethnic cleansing – a charge denied by Baku, which said that the enclave’s Armenians were welcome to remain on the territory.

Karabakh Armenians say that they have left en masse because they do not feel safe in Azerbaijan, Euronews reports.
