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.
