According to her, 20,892 vehicles crossed the Hakari bridge in the Lachin corridor, connecting Armenia with the former Karabakh.
Reuters reported that 120,000 Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh want to leave the region because they do not want to live in Azerbaijan and fear ethnic cleansing.
German media stated that 100-120 thousand people are the entire Armenian population of the former Karabakh, Deutsche Welle wrote.
On September 28, Azerbaijani authorities called on Armenian residents of Nagorno-Karabakh not to go but “become part of the Azerbaijani multinational society.”
