Armenians Flee Nagorno-Karabakh After Six-Week War With Azerbaijan

Last week, Russia negotiated a ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan, ending a six-week war that left thousands dead. The dispute was over Nagorno-Karabakh, a territory within Azerbaijan’s border but inhabited nearly exclusively by ethnic Armenians, many of whom are now forced to flee their homes - some reportedly burning them to the ground before they leave. To learn more about the conflict and what it means for the future of Armenia, Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke with Anna Ohanyan, a Non-Resident Senior Scholar for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Richard B. Finnegan Distinguished Professor of International Relations at Stonehill College. Also joining the discussion is Sergio La Porta, Haig and Isabel Berberian Professor of Armenian Studies and Interim Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities at Fresno State.

Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
