Nagorny Karabakh ceasefire announced


Conciliation Resources welcomes the ceasefire following three days of military escalation in and around Nagorny Karabakh. As a peacebuilding organisation, which supports dialogue between Armenians and Azerbaijanis, we hope that the ceasefire holds and negotiations are resumed with immediate effect. We believe that the conflict can and must be resolved peacefully.

We have been deeply worried by the extreme statements and threats to further intensify the fighting and ongoing polarisation. Many lives have been lost; numerous homes and livelihoods have also been destroyed.

it also explores points of convergence, asking whether this issue can be reframed as a solution to a common problem.
