Almost 13 years after the signing of a ceasefire agreement, there are still some 690,000 people internally displaced in Azerbaijan from Nagorno-Karabakh, a self-proclaimed independent state within the territory of Azerbaijan, and its adjacent districts. There are also an estimated 30,000 mainly Armenian displaced persons in Nagorno-Karabakh who arrived from other regions of Azerbaijan.
