Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that Armenians living in Karabakh should either take Azerbaijani citizenship or find another place of residence.

In a conversation with the AzTV channel, Aliyev stated that they had repeatedly stated that they would not discuss internal affairs with any country, and said: “Karabakh is our internal issue. He recalled that Armenians living in Karabakh will either have to obtain Azerbaijani citizenship or look for another place of residence.

Noting that an atmosphere of complete freedom prevails in the region and all democratic services are provided, Aliyev said: “This problem should be solved on the basis of human rights.”

Relations between the two former Soviet republics of Armenia and Azerbaijan have been strained since 1991, when the Armenian army occupied Karabakh and seven neighboring regions internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan.

In the fall of 2020, during the 44-day conflict, Azerbaijan liberated many cities, villages and settlements from the Armenian occupation.

The peace agreement signed with the mediation of Russia is celebrated in Azerbaijan as a victory.
