According to the Armenian Prime Minister, he made a decision based on the analysis of the military situation and the assessment of the military.

YEREVAN, November 10 – Sputnik. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that he signed a statement with the presidents of Russia and Azerbaijan on the cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh at 01:00.”I made a difficult, extremely difficult decision for myself and for all of us. I signed a statement with the presidents of Russia and Azerbaijan to end the Karabakh war at 01:00. The text of the already published statement is unspeakably painful for me personally and for our people,” he writes on your Facebook.

The prime minister noted that he made this decision as a result of an in-depth analysis of the military situation and assessment of people who know it best. Also based on the belief that this is the best possible solution to the current situation. He promises to tell about all this in detail in the coming days.

“This is not a victory, but there will be no defeat until you admit that you are a loser. We will never admit that we are a loser, and this should be the beginning of our era of national unity and revival,” he notes.

According to him, now you need to analyze the years of independence in order to plan your future and not repeat the mistakes of the past.

“I bow my knees before all our martyrs. I bow before all our soldiers, officers, generals, volunteers who defended and defend the Motherland with their lives. They selflessly saved the Armenians of Artsakh. We fought to the end. And we will win. Artsakh holds on.” he writes.

We give the text of the Statement without changes and abbreviations:

“We, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan I. G. Aliyev, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia N. V. Pashinyan and the President of the Russian Federation V. V. Putin, declared the following:

1. A complete ceasefire and all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict are announced from 00:00 hours Moscow time on November 10, 2020. The Republic of Azerbaijan
and the Republic of Armenia, hereinafter referred to as the Parties, stop at their positions.
2. The Agdam region and the territories held by the Armenian Party in the Gazakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan shall be returned to the Azerbaijan Party until November 20, 2020.
3. Along the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh and along the Lachin corridor, a peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation is deployed in the amount of 1,960 servicemen with small arms, 90 armored personnel carriers, 380 units of automobile and special equipment.
4. The peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation is being deployed in parallel with the withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces. The duration of the stay of the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation is 5 years with automatic extension for the next 5-year periods, if none of the Parties declares 6 months before the expiration of the period of intention to terminate the application of this provision.
5. In order to increase the effectiveness of control over the implementation of the agreements by the Parties to the conflict, a peacekeeping center is being deployed to control the ceasefire.
6. The Republic of Armenia will return the Kelbajar region to the Republic of Azerbaijan by November 15, 2020, and the Lachin region by December 1, 2020, leaving behind the Lachin corridor (5 km wide), which will ensure the connection of Nagorno-Karabakh with Armenia and at the same time not will affect the city of Shusha.
By agreement of the Parties, in the next three years, a plan for the construction of a new traffic route along the Lachin corridor, providing communication between Stepanakert and Armenia, with the subsequent redeployment of the Russian peacekeeping contingent to protect this route will be determined.
The Republic of Azerbaijan guarantees the safety of traffic along the Lachin corridor of citizens, vehicles and goods in both directions.
7. Internally displaced persons and refugees are returning to the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent areas under the control of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
8. There is an exchange of prisoners of war and other detained persons and bodies of the dead.
9. All economic and transport links in the region are unblocked. The Republic of Armenia provides transport links between the western regions of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic in order to organize the unimpeded movement of citizens, vehicles and goods in both directions. Control over transport communication is carried out by the bodies of the Border Service of the FSB of Russia.

By agreement of the Parties, construction of new transport communications linking the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic with the western regions of Azerbaijan will be provided. “

The press secretary of the Armenian Defense Minister Shushan Stepanyan informed a little earlier that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces inflict rocket and artillery strikes on all the main areas of the front line in Nagorno-Karabakh, massively use drones, shelling peaceful settlements, civilian infrastructure and even civilian vehicles. “The enemy is using artillery along the entire front line, preparing to strike in the direction of Martuni-Red Bazaar,” the message says. It was noted that the units of the NKR Defense Army control the operational-tactical situation, taking appropriate measures to control the further development of the situation.

"For our part, we will build and create. We will revive these cities and districts. We have major plans for the restoration of these lands. These plans and infrastructure projects are already being implemented," President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in his address to the nation.

"The construction of a new road to Shusha has already begun. In Soviet times, there was one way to Shusha – from Aghdam to Khankandi and from there to Shusha. We are now building a new road from Fuzuli district. It will pass through a part of the Khojavand district. I have ordered to do this as soon as possible. However, this is a huge task, there was no road before, and a new one is being built through forests. There are ravines, hills, and difficult terrain, but we will do it. We will restore the railways. In particular, preliminary instructions have already been given to restore the railway to the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. We have already taken tangible steps to restore the Barda-Aghdam railway. This road is a must for the Aghdam restoration and comfort of people who will live there in the future. All this work will be carried out in a planned manner, and the Azerbaijan people will be regularly updated about the work to be done. We must do all the work in a planned manner. I want to say again: first of all, all the damage will be calculated with international experts' participation. Then lawsuits will be filed. Then comes the reconstruction of our cities and villages based on master plans. The necessary measures related to agriculture, other infrastructure projects, water, and electricity will be taken. Then come the roads. When we drove the enemy out of Shusha, it destroyed the water line feeding the city. There is no water in Shusha now. It is what the enemy is like," the head of state added.

Ilham Aliyev: Occupation of Kalbajar is the direct responsibility of then ruling Popular Front

Avatar

Published

The occupation of the Kalbajar district was a great tragedy as other regions. After the occupation of Shusha and Lachin districts in May 1992, the invasion of Kalbajar also created a geographical link between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. Everyone knows that the former Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region did not have a border with the Republic of Armenia. Armenia was separated from Nagorno-Karabakh by the Lachin district and the Lachin corridor. The occupation of Lachin, Shusha, and then Kalbajar districts created a geographical connection between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh over a large area, and this was the enemy's goal. After the occupation of Kalbajar, it is possible to say that communication was established between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh in many ways. First of all, weapons, equipment, and manpower were sent there from Armenia. At the same time, it provided significant advantages for Armenia's subsequent policy of aggression.

The occupation of the Kalbajar district is the direct responsibility of the then ruling Popular Front of Azerbaijan. In general, the main culprit in the occupation of our lands is the Popular Front of Azerbaijan. Because if they had not come to power illegally in 1992 if they had not staged a coup, perhaps our lands would not have been occupied. Of course, it is challenging to go back in history and say what could and could not have happened. But in any case, they have played a direct role in our lands' occupation, and they bear this responsibility. Because in the spring of 1992, the power struggle reached its peak. There were internal conflicts in Azerbaijan, chaos, crisis, a political crisis, and the power struggle led to severe consequences. Armenia continued to take advantage of this to occupy our lands. After the occupation of Shusha and Lachin, the situation reached a critical level. Taking advantage of this, the Popular Front of Azerbaijan came to power due to a coup. But what happened after that? After that, they focused all their efforts on strengthening the weakened government, organizing persecutions in our country, applying censorship, and taking other anti-democratic steps. Our lands were under occupation. Our civilian population was expelled from their ancestral lands. Still, the Popular Front of Azerbaijan and its leadership had only one goal – to fill their pockets, appoint their relatives, and prolong their lives government. The occupation of Kalbajar was the result of these ugly steps. It could not have been otherwise. The younger generation may not remember this, but they should know who was leading Azerbaijan and people of what knowledge and what skills were leading Azerbaijan. Those people had no experience. Those people – the people who were represented in the government at the time, the people who held high positions – had never led a single department, not a single small enterprise. How could they run the country, especially in a crisis? But their yearning for power, their greed, their appetite, and avarice led to this situation in Azerbaijan. Look who governed Azerbaijan at the time?! The speaker of parliament was a junior researcher, in fact, a failed researcher. The secretary of state was a careerist from the Komsomol who had betrayed his leader at a later stage, set his eyes for his post, rejoiced in his death more than anyone else, and lived his entire life under the control of foreign circles. What kind of management would you expect from them? What kind of patriotism would you expect from them? What professionalism would you expect? The minister of foreign affairs was a random person who couldn't speak any foreign language, a physics teacher, someone who had no idea what foreign relations are, what international norms and principles are. He walked around like a tourist and said what he wanted to say. The minister of defense was a math teacher. Can a math teacher be a defense minister? It was this math teacher who handed Shusha over to the enemy. He said that if Shusha was lost, he would shoot himself in the head. It is still hanging around here and there. We have returned Shusha, we did! You sold it, traitors.
There were widespread robberies, the minister of internal affairs, and journalists were getting arrested, beaten up, and thrown into the trunks of cars during live broadcasts. Such were the leaders of the Popular Front of Azerbaijan. The prime minister was a junior researcher on scientific communism. Look at these contrasts. The man responsible for advancing the country's economy based on a market economy was a junior researcher on scientific communism. What kind of governance, what kind of reforms, what type of defense could you expect? Our grief and tragedy are that random people came to power, usurped power, and took our country into the abyss.

If Heydar Aliyev had not come to power at the request of the people in 1993, Azerbaijan would not only have lost the remaining lands but would have also lost its statehood in general. They started a civil war to maintain their weakened government. They took our own soldiers prisoner. They bombed Ganja. Let no-one forget that! Those unaware should know this. The younger generation should know who caused us this trouble. Who is to blame for this tragedy? Who is to blame for the plight of a million people? The government of the Popular Front of Azerbaijan at that time. If we were to draw comparisons now, their collective image is like that of Pashinyan – incompetent, not knowledgeable, weak-willed, cowardly, deserter, inexperienced in management, influenced by foreign circles, ruled by them, and destroying their own country. Look, they are all like Pashinyan. Those who do not know them should look at Pashinyan if they want to get an idea about them. Let them look at his steps and see the image of the then Popular Front of Azerbaijan and the country's leadership.

"Kalbajar district has been liberated from occupation today. I heartily congratulate all the people of Azerbaijan on this occasion. Your native district has been liberated from occupation. The people of Azerbaijan have been looking forward to this day for years. The enemy invaded Kalbajar on 2 April 1993. They savagely expelled innocent people from their ancestral lands and severely damaged the historical sites and nature of Kalbajar," President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in his address to the nation.

"The occupation of Kalbajar district was a great tragedy. The occupation of each district was a great tragedy. After the occupation of Shusha and Lachin districts in May 1992, the occupation of Kalbajar also created a geographical link between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.
