A convoy of trucks has brought a shipment of humanitarian aid to Nagorno Karabakh. This Friday the ceasefire, which put an end to the recent hostilities, continued without any type of incident being reported. But tension continues to be felt in the enclave.
In the midst of a ceasefire that has so far remained calm, a convoy of Russian trucks has delivered a shipment of humanitarian aid to Nagorno Karabakh. This enclave, the recent scene of hostilities, is still permeated with tension after the conflict. For its part, Azerbaijan, the country that won the conflict, also sent four trucks loaded with food, medicine and hygiene supplies to the territory, reaffirming its commitment to guaranteeing the safety of the inhabitants of Karabakh.
Meanwhile, in Armenia, protests continue in the city of Yerevan after the country lost the conflict against Baku and agreed to a ceasefire. Armenians now demand the resignation of the Government. In parallel, negotiations continue to take place on the reintegration of Nagorno Karabakh into Azerbaijan, despite the fact that the majority of the population in the enclave is of Armenian origin.
This ceasefire and possible reintegration of the territory would mark the end of a large-scale, intermittent war that began in the 1990s between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Delivery of weapons by Nagorno Karabakh to Russian peacekeepers
After agreeing to disarm within the framework of an “anti-terrorist operation” declared by Azerbaijan, the Nagorno-Karabakh forces began to hand over their weapons to Russian peacekeepers deployed in the region. According to Russian peacekeepers, more than 800 weapons, as well as grenades, mortars and anti-tank and anti-aircraft systems, have already been delivered in compliance with the agreements reached in the negotiations.
Protests in Armenia and warning from the prime minister
In Armenia, several people were detained during protests in central Yerevan. The protesters expressed their discontent over what they consider to be inaction by the authorities during the military operation launched by Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh. There were clashes with riot forces as protesters blocked traffic on streets and near government buildings.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinián warned that the authorities will act firmly but within the legal framework to avoid violent unrest. This situation occurs on an important day for Armenia, since it coincides with the day of its independence from the former Soviet republic.
