Displaced Artsakh Armenians Urge Aliyev to Facilitate Their Return
Groups representing some of the tens of thousands of Artsakh Armenians displaced during the 2020 Karabakh war have called on Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev to facilitate their return in accordance with the November 2020 tripartite ceasefire agreement.
