Harutyunyan admits all Karabakh could be de-occupied within days
Armenian politician, the so-called "president" of the fake NKR regime in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, Arayik Harutyunyan said on Tuesday that a ceasefire was unavoidable after Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia signed a deal to end the military conflict over the region.
He stressed that at this pace, within days they would have lost all Karabakh.
Harutyunyan said that ethnic Armenian forces lost Fuzuli, Jebrail, Gubadli, Zangilan, Hadrut regions, parts of Khojavend and Khojaly regions, and, most importantly, Shusha during six weeks of fighting and Azeri units were close to Khankendi, the region’s center.
On November 9, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a joint statement on a complete ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh. The Russian leader said the Azerbaijani and Armenian sides would remain on the positions they hold and Russian peacekeepers would be deployed to the region. Besides, Armenia and Azerbaijan should carry out the exchange of prisoners of war and the bodies of those killed. Aghdam region will be returned to Azerbaijan before November 20, Kelbajar region - before November 15, Lachin region - before December 1.
