Since the end of hostilities and conclusion of the war, hundreds of Azerbaijani civilians have been killed or injured by landmines, Azerbaijan's Permanent Representative to the UN Yashar Aliyev said during the Security Council open debate on the theme “War in cities: protection of civilians in urban settings.” 


He noted that Armenia has not shared accurate and comprehensive information about the hundreds of thousands of landmines it laid on Azerbaijan’s territory, thus attempting to impede the return of the internally displaced persons.

Aliyev recalled that as a result of the 44-day war in autumn 2020, the conflict has been resolved.

“Azerbaijan has prioritized rehabilitation and reconstruction of the liberated territories, the safe return of the displaced population and post-conflict peacebuilding,” the diplomat stressed.

“Moreover, those ordered and perpetrated attacks against Azerbaijani cities, towns and villages during the conflict remain unpunished. On the contrary, many of them were venerated and glorified as national heroes and promoted to the highest political and military positions in Armenia,” he added.
