A United Nations mission arrived Sunday in Nagorno-Karabakh, the first in three decades, Azerbaijan said after almost the entire ethnic-Armenian population fled since Azerbaijan recaptured the breakaway enclave.
An Azerbaijani presidency spokesman told AFP that a "UN mission arrived in Karabakh on Sunday morning" — mainly to assess humanitarian needs, the first time in around 30 years that the international body has gained access to the region.
