(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 22. The meeting
with representatives of the Armenian population in Yevlakh is
important from the point of view of strengthening regional peace
and the development of reintegration, political analyst Ilyas
Huseynov told Trend .
He noted that practical results are already visible.
"Azerbaijan has organized the dispatch of food cargoes. A
significant event is the dispatch of this cargo exactly on the
Aghdam-Khankendi route. Before that, the cargoes sent by the

Aghdam-Khankendi road after Azerbaijan's local anti-terrorist
activities in Karabakh gives grounds to say that separatists were
preventing the reception of cargoes and the reintegration process.
And today we are witnessing the reintegration process. It will take
some time. First of all, demilitarization of the region and
withdrawal of weapons are important," Huseynov said.

Statement, suppression of large-scale provocations in Azerbaijan's
Karabakh economic region, disarmament, and withdrawal of Armenian

their combat positions and military posts, and completely disarm;
the formations of the armed forces of Armenia leave the territory
