The Armenian population, who will continue to live in Nagorno Karabakh after liberation of the occupied lands of Azerbaijan, will be granted Azerbaijan citizenship, Deputy Foreign Minister, the President's special envoy on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict Araz Azimov has told the local ATV channel.
"In this case, official Yerevan must not be concerned over the fate of Armenians living in Karabakh, as Azerbaijan does not wage a war against its citizens," he stressed.

Azimov underlined that 30,000 Armenians are currently living in Azerbaijan, whose security are being highly ensured. "The Azerbaijanis, who were driven out from the occupied lands, must definitely return to their homes under international legal norms," he said. Commenting on the issue of ensuring security of Armenians in Karabakh, Azimov underlined that it is possible only on one condition that "the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan is restored".
