  • On November 25 in accordance with a ceasefire agreement Armenians left the Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan

    On November 25 2020 in accordance with a ceasefire agreement Armenians left the Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan which they occupied in 1993 during the first Karabakh war.

    The Armenian army and population had to leave Kalbajar by November 15. For some reason, the Armenian side asked to extend the deadline for the evacuation of the population and the army until November 25, and Azerbaijan, postponed the deadline due to humanitarian reasons.

    However, Armenians apparently damaged the environment and burned houses in Kalbajar.

    This is an environmental crime that causes serious damage to the ecological situation of the region and the planet in general.

    Azerbaijani side urged the world community, international organizations, including the international organizations working in the field of ecology and environmental protection to stop Armenia that used environmental terrorism, confirmed by the facts of local and foreign media, as a tool for its aggressive actions and called for drastic measures to prevent eco-terrorism committed by the aggressor Armenia.

    At the same time, the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources (MENR) addressed a total of 31 international organizations working in the field of ecology and environmental protection to assess these cases.

    It should be noted that the Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan was occupied by Armenians in 1993. At that time, more than 60,000 Azerbaijanis had to leave their homes in less than 10 hours.
