Paragraph 4 of the tripartite declaration signed after the 44-day war reflected the deployment of the peacekeeping contingent in parallel with the withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces. Despite the fact that Armenia recognized the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, including the Karabakh region, during the period after the conflict, the armed groups have not yet been removed and the ongoing provocations have raised the issue of conducting further military operations.
Report informs that taking into account the relevance of the topic, the Social Research Center conducted an opinion poll among citizens.
71.3% of respondents in Azerbaijan answered "yes" to the question "Should Azerbaijan conduct new military operations against illegal armed groups in Karabakh?"
24.1% of those who took part in the survey took the opposite position and said they do not want new military operations. 4.6% of the respondents found it difficult to answer this question.
Fieldwork (data collection) of the survey was carried out between September 8 and 11, 2023. 390 respondents over the age of 18 took part in the survey, which was conducted in the form of telephone interviews and covered Baku, Absheron-Khizi, Mountainous Shirvan, Ganja-Dashkasan, Gazakh-Tovuz, Lankaran-Astara, Guba-Khachmaz, Shaki-Zagatala, Karabakh, Central Aran, Mil-Mughan, Shirvan-Salyan economic regions.
