UN mission visits Nagorno-Karabakh for the first time in 30 years amid mass exodus of ethnic Armenians

1 Min Read

A United Nations mission arrived in Nagorno-Karabakh on Sunday, October 1, 2023, to assess the humanitarian situation in the disputed region, which was recaptured by Azerbaijan last week after a one-day offensive that ended decades of Armenian separatist control.

The visit marks the first time in about 30 years that the international body has gained access to the region, which is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but had been under the de facto rule of ethnic Armenians since a war in the early 1990s.
