Azerbaijan Ends State of War in Nagorno-Karabakh
Azerbaijan will end the state of war in the controversial Nagorno-Karabakh border region on Saturday, one month after the end of the fighting.
In the umpteenth war between the two ex-Soviet republics, Azerbaijan has taken a piece of the territory from Armenia.
The state of war in Azerbaijan meant, among other things, that all soldiers were mobilized and ready to intervene if necessary.
The fighting lasted from September 27 to November 9. In total, at least 4,600 people died during the conflict. On Thursday, Azerbaijan held a large military parade to celebrate the “victory”.
Armenia and Azerbaijan have been in constant conflict since 1990 due to the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.
