Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov has informed UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres about the destruction of the territories in Nagorno-Karabakh.

He stressed that the entire infrastructure in Karabakh was ruined. According to Bayramov, illegal armed groups operated in the region, damaging cultural monuments, and the environment.

The minister announced the need for all-out restoration work on the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and voiced his intention to cooperate with international organizations in this area, the ministry's website says.

Before that, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev demanded compensation from Armenia for the destruction in the region. He noted that Azerbaijan would sue Armenia in international courts.

NEWS.ru reported earlier that Russia hopes the events in Armenia won’t affect the implementation of the trilateral agreement on Nagorno-Karabakh.
