Baku/22.09.23/Turan: Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced during a government meeting that preparations have been made to accommodate 40 thousand residents from the conflict-torn region of Karabakh in Armenia. Pashinyan emphasized that this relocation option would be pursued only if living conditions in Karabakh became untenable for its inhabitants.

Pashinyan stated, "Our position related to the possible relocation of our compatriots from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia is as follows. This will happen when it is recorded that their living in their homes will be impossible. At the moment, this situation is obvious. And if the situation does not improve, then this problem will be on our agenda. We have done some work, and now 40 thousand places have been prepared in Armenia."

Furthermore, Pashinyan clarified that the Armenian government's primary goal is to ensure the safety and security of Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh, and the exodus of residents from the region is not part of their plan. They aim to create conditions that allow Karabakh residents to continue living in their homes without fear.

However, questions have arisen regarding the figure of 40 thousand prepared places, given previous estimates suggesting a larger Armenian population in Karabakh - 120 thousand.  Some alternative sources have cast doubt on the accuracy of these population estimates. Studies have indicated that even before the outbreak of the second Karabakh war, the Armenian population in the region was around 50 thousand. Meanwhile, Armenia itself has experienced a population decline, reducing from 3.3 million in 1988 to 1.5 million in 2020.---0--
