The Armenians of Artsakh’s Karvachar will have an extra 10 days to withdraw from the region, per Russia’s TASS new agency.
The delay is connected with the insufficient capacity of the only road leading from the Karvachar region to Armenia, TASS quotes Hikmet Hajiyev, Adviser to Azerbaijan’s President.
These territories are now scheduled to be transferred to Azerbaijan on November 25.
Baku agreed to give Yerevan a postponement of withdrawal due to the insufficient capacity of the only road leading from the Kelbajar region to Armenia which is seriously congested, along for other humanitarian reasons, per TASS.
On November 9, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a joint statement on the complete cessation of hostilities in Artsakh. According to the Russian leader, the Azerbaijani and Armenian sides will remain in their positions, and Russian peacekeepers will be deployed in the region. In addition, Aliyev specified that, according to the agreements, the Aghdam region will be returned to Azerbaijan by November 20, the Kelbajar region by November 15, and the Lachin region by December 1.
