PanARMENIAN.Net – 243 people are still missing after the 44-day war unleashed by Azerbaijan against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) in fall 2020, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on Wednesday, September 15.
Pashinyan added that the figures are constantly being updated as “work is underway” to find out their fate.
“No international meeting with the involvement of Armenian officials – from parliamentary platforms to government ones – takes place without raising the issue of missing persons, captives,” Pashinyan told lawmakers on Thursday, September
Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev on November 9 signed a statement to end the war in Karabakh after almost 45 days. Under the deal, the Armenian side returned all the seven regions surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
