Armenia and Azerbaijan have been in an on-and-off war with each other since the 1990s. One of the main reasons is the long-term dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, a landlocked region in the mountains that is home to around 150,000 people. On October 7, the European Council announced that the two countries have confirmed their commitment to the Charter of the United Nations and the Alma Ata 1991 Declaration through which both recognise each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. They also agreed to an EU mission alongside their border, which would operate for a maximum of two months starting in October. But will this agreement help bring the three-decade conflict to an end? Ukraine in Flames #214 is set to find out.
