A meeting between representatives of Azerbaijan and Armenia began in Yevlakh

Representatives of Azerbaijan and a delegation of the Armenian community of the Karabakh region are meeting in the Azerbaijani city of Yevlakh on Thursday for talks on reintegration issues.

Azerbaijan will be represented by Ramin Mammadov, envoy for relations with Karabakh Armenians, Bashir Hajiyev, deputy special representative, and Ilkin Sultanov.

The Armenian side is represented by Sergey Martirosyan and David Melkumyan. Representatives of the Russian side as a peacekeeping contingent also present at the meeting.

The sides discuss reintegration of Karabakh’s Armenian population into Azerbaijani society.

On Wednesday, Azerbaijan suspended an “anti-terrorist operation” that was being carried out to disarm Armenian forces in Karabakh and uphold the 2020 trilateral peace agreement.

Armenia and Azerbaijan have been feuding since 1991, when the Armenian military occupied Karabakh, a territory internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan, and seven surrounding districts.

During 44 days of fighting in the autumn of 2020, the Azerbaijani army managed to liberate several towns, villages and settlements from Armenian occupation. The war ended with a ceasefire mediated by Russia, and negotiations on the normalisation of relations began.
