Poll: 67% of Azerbaijanis believe Karabakh Armenians will be killed or displaced

Almost 72% of the residents of Baku admit that they do not believe in peace with the Armenians, according to a survey conducted by FOCUS Free Alliance of Euro-Asian Sociologists.

At the same time, almost 62% believe that Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) is now under blockade.

Opinions were divided about the fate of Karabakh though. Every third Azerbaijani believes that the Armenians will leave Karabakh, every fourth believes that military force will be used.

A little more than 18% of respondents believe in the voluntary integration of Karabakh Armenians into Azerbaijani society. An absolute minority - less than 5% - believes that Karabakh will remain independent.

Anti-Armenian sentiments are strong in Azerbaijan, the survey says. Almost 43% of the respondents agreed that the Armenians of Karabakh would be killed, another 24% said that the Armenians would be driven out of their homes. Only 28% of Azerbaijanis agree to coexisting with the Karabakh Armenians and helping them.

A telephone express survey among residents of Baku was conducted by CAEAS "FOCUS"

From July 20 to August 3, 1200 people were interviewed over the phone, with the margin of error at 3%.
