YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: To date, Azerbaijanis have not settled in [Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh)] regions [now] under Azerbaijani control as a consequence of the 44-day war [in the fall of 2020].
The people of Artsakh say that they [i.e., the Azerbaijani] are carrying out construction work with vigor, building the road almost everywhere—including Hadrut, Shushi—, an airport in Fizuli, military bases, barracks in almost all regions—but they are not inhabited.
Ordinary [Azerbaijani] residents do not come to live in Artsakh. Only the military is on duty here, and some regions—such as Shushi—have become a tourism zone for Azerbaijanis.
According to the information of open Azerbaijani sources, [Azerbaijani president] Aliyev is primarily concerned with the matter of demarcation and delimitation of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, only after which they will start populating the regions.
