Armenia has announced its readiness to sign a surrender agreement with Azerbaijan, Trend reports.
After the liberation of Shusha city there was no other way out for Armenia but to accept the demands of President Ilham Aliyev and surrender.
The liberation of the city of Shusha by the Azerbaijani army decided the outcome of the war that began on September 27.
The subsequent liberation of 72 settlements and 8 strategic heights within one day forced the Armenian side to raise a white flag.
Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of 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, 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, 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.
