Kalbajar and Lachin had been occupied by Armenia since early 1990s and were liberated as a result of the Second Karabakh war. The Russian-brokered trilateral peace deal signed by Baku, Yerevan and Moscow in November 10, 2020, ended the war and stipulated the return of Kalbajar, Lachin and Aghdam regions.
It should be noted that Azerbaijan continues building new military units and facilities in its liberated territories in the Second Karabakh war.
In July several new military units were inaugurated in Azerbaijan’s liberated Aghdam, Zangilan, Lachin, Khojavend, Khojaly regions. Azerbaijan has been opening military units in liberated regions to ensure the better reinforcement of its borders since the last year's war.
