Relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan have remained tense over the sovereignty dispute over the Nagorny-Karabakh region.
The area is located deep in the southwestern territory of Azerbaijan, but is populated by a majority of ethnic Armenians who want to incorporate the region into Armenia.
The peak of tensions was a conflict that lasted from February 1988 to May 1994, killing about 30,000 people. By the end of September 2020, the conflict re-erupted in the area and lasted 44 days, killing at least 6,500 people.
