Not only international law, but historical, geographical and economic factors make Mountainous (Upper) #Karabakh attached to #Azerbaijan. British Commander in #Transcaucasia Colonel D.I. Shuttleworth in April 1919 asserted that that Mountainous Karabakh would starve were it
separated from the plains in the east and vital railway link at Yevlakh on the Batum-Tiflis-Baku line. The Caucasus Bureau also made it clear in its decision that the economic ties between Upper (Nagorno) and Lower #Karabakh are strong, so Upper Karabakh should be retained within
#Azerbaijan. Since the Karabakh War ended, the area has swiftly declined economically due to the break in economic relations with #Azerbaijan. All Mountainous #Karabakh’s business was conducted with the closest cities such as #Ganja and #Agdam rather than distant #Armenia.
The last 30 years once again made it clear that #Karabakh can only develop properly within #Azerbaijan’s boundaries.
