Azerbaijan greenlights Armenia’s delayed troop withdrawal from Kalbajar district - TASS

Kalbajar district

 Baku agreed to let Yerevan delay the withdrawal of its troops from the Kalbajar District in Karabakh until November 25, Azerbaijani Presidential Aide Hikmet Hajiyev told reporters on Sunday.

"Armenia’s authorities submitted a request through the Russian side. The request on allowing the delay is linked to insufficient carrying capacity of the only road leading from the Kalbajar District to Armenia," Hajiyev said.

Azerbaijan agreed to this delay due to humanitarian reasons, he noted.

"The process of withdrawing Armenian forces and civilians, leaving Kalbajar, will be fully under control. The road leading from there to Armenia is rather narrow and it is very busy," Hajiyev said.

The process of withdrawing Armenian forces and citizens along this road has led to a serious traffic jam.

"However, the pullout of Armenian forces from the Agdamsky and Lachinsky districts will be carried out in accordance with the schedule approved by the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian leaders," he stressed.


  1. The hand over of Artsakh’s Karvachar (Kelbajar) region to Azerbaijan, which was scheduled for Sunday, has been delayed for 10 more days.

    Karvachar was the first of several territories to be surrendered to Azerbaijan as part of the “end of war” agreements signed by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and the presidents of Russia and Azerbaijan. That agreement also stipulates the surrender of Shushi.

    The delay was attributed to the lack of capacity of the roads leading to Armenia from the region.

    Many Artsakh residents, who have been forced to leave their homes because of surrender of territories to Azerbaijan as stipulated in the “end of war” agreement, have chosen to burn or destroy their homes rather than leave them to Azerbaijanis who might settle there.

    In the Kashatagh Region of Artsakh, as well as, residents are burning their houses and leaving.

    After taking down the pictures of Armenian heroes from the walls of Erkej secondary school, its students spray painted notes—addressing Azerbaijanis—on the interior and exterior walls.

    Aghdam is scheduled to be handed over on November 20.

    A caravan of cars was spotted making its way along the Berdzor (Lachin) corridor headed toward Armenia, as another caravan of Russian peacekeepers was entering Artsakh.

  2. Aserbaidschan hat laut dem Assistenten des Präsidenten des Landes, Hikmet Gadschijew, Armenien noch weitere zehn Tage Zeit für den Truppenabzug aus der Region Kalbadschar gegeben.

    „Angesichts der Schwierigkeiten der armenischen Seite und unter Berücksichtigung der Prinzipien des Humanismus hat Aserbaidschan beschlossen, Armenien weitere zehn Tage Zeit zu geben, damit es seine Streitkräfte aus der Region Kalbadschar abzieht. Das Datum, an dem die Region an Aserbaidschan übergeben wird, ist nun nicht der 15. sondern der 25. November“, sagte Gadschijew bei einem Briefing am Sonntag
