Armenia/Azerbaijan: Baku and Yerevan locals share opinion on ceasefire

Azerbaijan, Baku, Yerevan
October 11, 2020 at 22:44 GMT +00:00 · Published

Residents of Baku and Yerevan gave their opinion on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict after announcement of the ceasefire.

Rufat Gubadov from Baku said he is quite skeptical about Armenian side on Saturday. "There is no reason to trust their words. It’s been a while, and we listen to them, listen to them, trying to resolve the whole conflict peacefully, but apparently our words do not reach them," he stated.

Another resident of Baku, Saadat Guliva, noted that, "if there is any opportunity to solve the conflict peacefully, it would be good to go without any bloodshed."

Yerevan residents support the ceasefire. "The ceasefire at this stage is a right decision," said Anait Ahverdyan.

Another Yerevan resident, Edgar Ramazyan, also welcomed the ceasefire: "Personally I support the end of everything through the peace as countries are suffering dramatic human losses and human lives are of great value."

Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a ceasefire from midday (local time; 08:00 GMT) on October 10, and plan to start negotiations over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Azerbaijani officials say that Armenia has already violated the agreements. Armenia denies breaking the ceasefire.

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the territory of the Nagorno-Karabakh disputed region broke out on September 27 when sides of the conflict exchanged fire. It's been the heaviest clashes in the region since the 1994 ceasefire, with both sides blaming each other for the escalation amid rising casualty figures.
