Azerbaijani President Aliyev Plans to Settle 140,000 People in Occupied Artsakh Territories by 2026

Azerbaijan's President, Ilham Aliyev, says he aims to settle approximately 140,000 people in occupied Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) by the year 2026. In an interview with Euronews, Aliyev outlined Azerbaijan’s intention for the occupied region – he also included bringing back the indigenous Armenians from Artsakh who were forcibly displaced from their homes in September 2023. 


Alyev himself emphasized that those Armenians who desire to return to their indigenous homeland of Artsakh must obtain an Azerbaijan citizenship to facilitate their return to their homes.


Aliyev spoke about the significant investment in infrastructure and housing facilities in Artsakh as a prerequisite for a successful occupied settlement. 


The Azerbaijani dictator’s ambition to settle individuals on lands to whom they do not historically belong to requires the international community’s attention to the recent war crimes and genocide that was committed by Azerbaijan against the ethnic Armenians of Artsakh from 2020 to 2023. 


The President's plan to resettle individuals in a region with a complex historical background requires the international community's attention to the past events, including the war crimes and genocide perpetrated against the ethnic Armenians of Artsakh from 2020 until September 2023.
