Key Developments:

Statement by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan Regarding Recent Developments in Nagorno-Karabakh

The Republic of Armenia wishes to clarify that it has not been involved in either the crafting or negotiation of the recent text outlining the withdrawal of Armenian forces from Nagorno-Karabakh. Instead, we have acquiesced to the decision made by the authorities of Karabakh to implement a ceasefire and dissolve their armed formations.

The statement contains specific references to the \”withdrawal of units of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia,\” a point which remains puzzling for us. It is essential to reiterate that Armenia has not had any military presence in Nagorno-Karabakh since August 2021.

Yerevan duly notes the statement issued by Baku regarding the situation in Karabakh. We remain hopeful that these developments signify an end to military escalations in the region.

Furthermore, the Defense Army of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic will be disbanded and fully disarmed. All heavy equipment and weapons are to be removed promptly for disposal.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan has verified that all paramilitary units of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic are relinquishing their positions and arms. Russian peacekeepers are overseeing the disarmament and transfer of equipment. Azerbaijan has also decided to suspend its ongoing anti-terrorist operations in the region.

According to Dmitry Peskov, Press Secretary for the Russian President, Azerbaijan’s actions are de jure within its territorial jurisdiction. Moscow has dismissed Armenian objections regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh issue.

Upcoming Dialogue on Reintegration and Security

A critical meeting is slated for September 21 in Yevlakh, where the future reintegration of Nagorno-Karabakh will be discussed. This dialogue aims to address the rights, security, and livelihoods of the local Armenian population within the framework of Azerbaijan’s Constitution.
