Large areas in Nagorno-Karabakh previously controlled by ethnic Armenians were handed over to Azerbaijan, whose forces had captured territory including areas that Baku lost in an earlier war in the 1990s.

An Armenian law enforcement officer detains a protester during an opposition rally to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan following the signing of a deal to end a military conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, in Yerevan, Armenia December 3, 2020.

"It's important that the necessity to ensure the security of the peaceful population of Artsakh, the facts of undermining the peace process by Azerbaijan through military means and the deployment of terrorist groups and mercenaries in Nagorno-Karabakh with the support of Turkey are enshrined in the resolution", she added. Scores of Armenian civilians were also killed.

That cooperation increased in the build-up towards the renewed conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia which began in September, leading up to the defeat and surrender of Armenia last month which ended the country's three-decade-long occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Armenia's Health Ministry said Wednesday that at least 2,718 Armenian servicemen were killed in the fighting. Azerbaijan completed reclaiming those territories on Tuesday when it took over the Lachin region located between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia.

Some 2,000 Russian peacekeeping troops are now being deployed to the region.

While the presidency did not provide details of the visit, Erdogan is expected to meet with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev.

"The Azerbaijani people's will and determination, the country's economic power, the creation of a modern army and the national unity were the key factors behind our victory", Aliyev said in his decree.

Azerbaijan's defence ministry said that 2,783 troops were killed during the 44 days of intense clashes, and 103 of them are yet to be identified.

The government also said 94 of its civilians were killed and more than 400 were wounded in shelling.
