The trilateral statement on the Karabakh conflict signed Nov. 10, 2020, will contribute to the establishment of long-term peace in the region, Kazakhstan’s President Kassym Jomart Tokayev said, Trend reports.

Tokayev made the statement during his speech at the meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) held in a video format.

“In my opinion, this truly is a historic agreement. The mediation of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin with the aim to end hostilities within the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict deserves the highest praise. The agreement reached with the most active participation of Russia, in my opinion, is the only correct decision in the current situation,” Tokayev said.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is introduced at 00:00 hours (Moscow time) on 10 November 2020.

Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of the Azerbaijani army on the front line, using large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery on Sept. 27. Azerbaijan responded with a counter-offensive along the entire front.

Back in July 2020, the Armenian Armed Forces violated the ceasefire in the direction of Azerbaijan's Tovuz district. As a result of Azerbaijan's retaliation, the opposing forces were silenced. The fighting continued the following days as well. Azerbaijan lost a number of military personnel members, who died fighting off the attacks of the Armenian Armed Forces.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, the Armenian Armed Forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.

A program for recycling old cars to renew the car fleet is planned to be implemented in Azerbaijan, Transport expert, lawyer Arshad Huseynov told Trend.

"One of the main goals of this program is to prevent damage to the environment from old vehicles. In this regard, it is important to stimulate the import of environmentally friendly hybrids and electric vehicles," said the expert.

If hybrid cars imported into the country are exempt from excise tax, customs duties, and value-added tax (VAT) is reduced, the price of these cars will drop significantly.

"There are serious customs benefits for electric vehicles. However, it would be worthwhile to abolish customs duties for a while. Currently, electric vehicles imported into the country are exempt from excise tax and VAT, but they are subject to 15-percent customs duty. But it would be better if there was not this customs duty. In this case, the import of such cars into the country would increase massively," Huseynov noted.

The expert stressed that hybrids and electric vehicles are more efficient from an environmental point of view.

"Older cars are more polluting, while hybrid and electric cars are more environmentally efficient. Many people and various government agencies are proposing to stimulate the import of hybrids and electric vehicles, especially, the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources also supports this initiative," added Huseynov.
