Azerbaijan President Visits Newly Controlled Regions of Nagorno-Karabakh

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Azerbaijan President Visits Newly Controlled Regions of Nagorno-Karabakh” – below is their description.

President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has visited Fizuli and Jabrail, regions of Nagorno-Karabakh that Azerbaijan took control of as part of a cease-fire deal with longtime adversary Armenia. Crowds of supporters met him in the street chanting “Karabakh.” Aliyev announced a plan to restore the infostructure of the regions that were under the control of ethnic Armenian forces since 1994. Mehriban Aliyeva, the first lady of Azerbaijan and the first vice President of the country accompanied Ilham Aliyev during the trip. Footage shared by the Presidential press service showed Ilham Aliyev on the wheel of the vehicle while driving through the regions. The Moscow-brokered truce that halted fighting that killed hundreds – and possibly thousands – in six weeks was celebrated in Azerbaijan but sparked mass protests in Armenia, as it stipulated that Armenia turn over control of some areas its holds outside Nagorno-Karabakh’s borders to Azerbaijan. Armenia and Azerbaijan have been locked in a conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh for decades. Heavy fighting that flared up Sept. 27 marked the biggest escalation in over a quarter-century, killing hundreds and possibly thousands of people. The truce last week halted the violence after several failed attempts to establish a lasting cease-fire and came two days after Azerbaijan, which had made significant advances, announced it had seized Shusha. Russian peacekeepers have started to move into the region – a total of 1,960 of them are to be sent in under a five-year mandate. Russia’s Defense Ministry reported that the peacekeepers accompanied about 1,200 people returning to Nagorno-Karabakh from Armenia since Saturday. At the same time, many ethnic Armenians have been leaving territory that will be handed over to Azerbaijan, with some setting their houses on fire in a bitter farewell and digging up the graves of their relatives in order to rebury the remains in Armenia.
