According to the organization, the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and the deportation of more than 100,000 Armenians were important events for Armenia in 2023.

According to Human Rights Watch, “more than 100 thousand Armenians, almost the entire Armenian population of Nagorno Karabakh, [2023 թվականի] left Armenia in September in order to establish full control over Artsakh and Azerbaijan [ձեռնարկած] after a military operation”.

The report emphasizes that the Baku-initiated military operation was preceded by a months-long acute shortage of food, medicine, hygiene supplies and other essential goods in Nagorno-Karabakh due to Azerbaijan’s suspension of transportation between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh from December 2022.

In the section of the report regarding Baku, the organization reminds: “Azerbaijan refused to comply [ՄԱԿ-ի] International Court of Justice [2023 թվականի] interim decisions of February and July, which call on Azerbaijan to ensure “unhindered movement of people, vehicles and cargo through the Lachin Corridor in both directions”.

It is also noted that after the military operations of September 2023, Baku arrested “several leaders of the de facto authorities”, accusing them, among other things, of financing terrorism, creating illegal armed groups and crossing the border illegally.

The report, however, calls the December 2023 joint statement of the Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders “historical” on steps to normalize relations and the exchange of servicemen.
