Munitions left by the Armenian armed forces while fleeing during the 44-day war in autumn 2020 have been found in Azerbaijan’s Khojavand region.

The Barda regional group of the Azerbaijani Interior Ministry's press service reported that an Igla anti-aircraft missile system, 15 missiles, and 97 mortar shells were found in areas where Armenian combat positions used to be in Khojavand region. 

On November 10, Baku and Yerevan signed a Moscow-brokered deal that brought an end to 44 days of fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijani army declared a victory against the Armenian troops. The signed agreement obliged Armenia to withdraw its troops from the Azerbaijani lands that it has occupied since the early 1990s.

On January 11, the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian leaders signed the second statement since the end of the 44-day war. The newly-signed statement is set to implement clause 9 of the November 2020 statement related to the unblocking of all economic and transport communications in the region.
