Farewell to Karabakh: Lessons from the two-chair tragedy

The Armenian side lost all the territories around Nagorno-Karabakh and some regions included in the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region. There are also Russian peacekeepers in the region. Armenia has never recognized Karabakh, and its Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated that Karabakh was part of Azerbaijani territory in negotiations with the West and then at a press conference in Yerevan in May 2023.
On September 19, 2023, Azerbaijan launched a military operation in Karabakh, one of the goals of which was to disperse all the bodies of unrecognized Karabakh. Yerevan said that there were no Armenian troops in Karabakh and described these actions as attacks. A day later, an agreement was reached on a ceasefire with the mediation of Russian peacekeepers. Among the ceasefire conditions, the disarmament of Armenian formations was specifically stated. Later, numerous rounds of negotiations were held between representatives of Karabakh and Baku regarding the integration of the region into the republic. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that Azerbaijan has restored its territorial integrity.
