Following Azerbaijan's military offensive, most ethnic Armenians 'want to leave' Nagorno-Karabakh


The ethnic Armenian leadership of breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh said on Friday that there was no agreement yet with Azerbaijan on security guarantees or an amnesty after a lightning Azeri offensive forced them into a humiliating ceasefire deal. The future of Karabakh and its 120,000 ethnic Armenians hangs in the balance: Azerbaijan wants to integrate the long-contested region, but ethnic Armenians say they fear they will be persecuted and have accused the world of abandoning them. To share a glimpse of the harrowing plight of Karabakh's ethnic Armenians, FRANCE 24's Delano D'Souza is joined by Ruben Vardanyan, Former State Minister of Artsakh.
