The European Council Commission report highlights depopulation from Nagorno-Karabakh caused by actions by Baku

YEREVAN, JUNE 21, ARMENPRESS.The annual report of the Council of Europe Commission against Racism and Intolerance for 2023 states that more than 100,000 Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh fled their homes as a result of the Azerbaijani military operation on September 19-20 of that year.

The report confirms that as a result of Azerbaijani military actions, Armenians, who are the native people of Nagorno-Karabakh, were forced to leave their thousand-year-old homeland and relocate to the Republic of Armenia.

It also noted that Council of Europe member states are trying to respond proportionately to the arrival of asylum-seekers from unstable parts of the world.

“Until conditions are created for the safe return of displaced people to their countries, host states must develop long-term policies that ensure adequate access to housing, employment, education, health care and social services,” the report emphasizes.
