According to the country's operational headquarters for COVID-19 prevention and control, Azerbaijan reported on Sunday 322 new cases in the last 24 hours, bringing its total to 227,273.

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

Saturday, 05 December 2020 09:34

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.

Statement by Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia

Published in Politics
Wednesday, 30 September 2020 15:06

Another military confrontation between Azerbaijan and Armenia has created a grave situation. There are heavy casualties and, unfortunately, the cessation of hostilities and the resumption of dialogue has not been possible thus far.

We all understand that further escalation of the situation will have an extremely negative impact on the security of the entire region. We once again call on the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs and international actors to make the most of the available opportunities to end the escalation and resume dialogue. As you know, our country has good neighborly relations with both countries, Azerbaijan and Armenia.

Historically, our Azerbaijani and Armenian citizens living in Georgia have always played a great role in the development and strengthening of our country, as well as the entire region. At the same time, their peaceful coexistence is a good example demonstrating that Georgians, Armenians, and Azerbaijanis have the potential to turn the entire South Caucasus into an area of peace and development.

It is our common interest for peace to be established in the region as quickly as possible. Georgia is ready to facilitate this process in any way, including by hosting a meeting of representatives of the sides of the conflict in Tbilisi for the purpose of holding a dialogue.
