Armenians protest Azerbaijan's actions at UN Headquarters.

Several dozens of people waving Armenian flags gathered outside the United Nations (UN) Headquarters in New York City. These individuals were protesting against Azerbaijan’s recent activities in Nagorno-Karabakh. A large Armenian flag was unfurled by the protestors, while others held smaller flags and banners, demanding an end to Azerbaijani operations in the disputed region.

Simultaneously, descendants of other nations, including Iran and China, were staging separate protests in the same area. As the UN General Assembly’s High-Level Week was in progress, the UN building was corded off to manage the influx of protestors.

Tensions Escalate Once More in Nagorno-Karabakh

On September 19, the tense situation in Nagorno-Karabakh took a turn for the worse. Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, instigated what it referred to as “local anti-terrorist measures”. The Azerbaijani government insisted on the withdrawal of Armenian troops from the region, escalating the existing tension.

However, Yerevan, the Armenian capital, refuted these claims, stating that there were no Armenian forces in Karabakh. They labeled the situation as “an act of large-scale aggression”. This led to local protests outside the Armenian government building, with citizens blaming the country’s leadership and Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan for the escalation.

Impact of the Ongoing Conflict

The ongoing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh has led to protests both within the countries and internationally. The situation has sparked international concern, prompting demonstrations outside the UN headquarters. The crisis appears to have domestically affected Armenia, with citizens blaming their leaders for the escalating situation.

The conflict has not just remained confined to the borders of these two nations but has also managed to resonate globally. The international community has expressed its concern over the escalating tensions, as demonstrated by the various protests held across major cities worldwide.
