New Agreement Between Azerbaijan And Armenia
The Nagorno-Karabakh ceasefire agreement in 2020 is a ceasefire agreement that ended the Nagorno-Karabakh war in 2020. Signed on 9 November by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Prime Minister Nikol Pachinjan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, it ended all hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region from 00:00, 10 November 2020 Moscow time.   The President of the self-declared Artsakh Republic, Arayik Harutyunyan, also agreed to the end of hostilities.  Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia have signed an agreement to end the military conflict over the controversial Nagorno-Karabakh enclave. After the signing of the agreement, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pachinjan said: „This is not a victory, but there is no defeat until you consider yourself defeated, we will never consider ourselves defeated, and it will be a new beginning in an era of national unity and rebirth.“  Following the announcement of the ceasefire agreement, violent demonstrations took place in Yerevan. Armenian Parliament spokesman Ararat Mirzoyan was beaten by an angry mob who stormed Parliament after the peace deal was announced. Pachinjan, however, suggested that Mirzoyan`s life was „not in danger“ and that he had been operated on.   Many in the region and Armenia share this anger over Nikol Pachinjan. For days, protests have led him to resign.
In the capital Yerevan, protesters chanted „Pachinjan – traitor!“ and fought for the evocation of his name. Many consider Nagorno-Karabakh a legitimate part of Armenia. And many in the separatist region say that Pachinjan sold part of his homeland by signing the last peace agreement. His sadness and anger are palpable, but with little hope that the situation will improve. After all, the Djulfa cemetery, before its destruction, was a Unesco World Heritage Site. „We had no military or political influence. There is no difference between Azerbaijan that is destroying our people and our culture. We are our culture. Masses claim that the agreement with Azerbaijan to withdraw is a betrayal after heavy fighting for the disputed Armenian enclave will also return the Lachin region, which holds the main road from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia.
