The breakaway republic of Nagorno-Karabakh will dissolve by Jan. 1, 2024, according to a decree signed by the president of the ethnic Armenian enclave. The news comes a week after a victory by Azeri forces and the exodus of thousands of ethnic Armenians to Armenia. President Samvel Shahramanyan’s decree, which calls for the dissolution of all government institutions and organizations in the republic, marks the termination of decades of fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the region. Azerbaijan declared victory after a 24-hour conflict last week, and it has long said that citizens of the republic, which lies within its borders, must accept Azerbaijani citizenship if they stay.
