Talks are underway between officials from Azerbaijan and from the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, two days after Azerbaijan launched a deadly military operation in the disputed territory and one day after a ceasefire was announced. On Wednesday, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said his country had restored sovereignty over Nagorno-Karabakh, which is overwhelmingly made up of ethnic Armenians but is recognized as Azerbaijani territory as part of a Russia-brokered ceasefire following the 2020 war. Meanwhile, protesters in Armenia took to the streets to demand Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan resign for failing to support separatists in Nagorno-Karabakh, who agreed to disarm Wednesday. Negotiators said today certain security guarantees would have to be agreed to before they permanently disarm. Residents of Nagorno-Karabakh have suffered food, fuel and medical shortages due to an ongoing blockade by Azerbaijan, which has also led to accusations of genocide.
