Armenia calls for international investigation in Lachín corridor

Yerevan, Jan 5 (Prensa Latina) Armenia urged the international community to send a mission to Nagorno-Karabakh to investigate the situation around the Lachin corridor blocked by Azerbaijani environmentalists, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinián said.

According to Pashinyan, Yerevan hopes that the international community, “including Russia, which is a permanent member of the UN Security Council and whose peacekeeping troops are deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh,” will take further steps to lift the blockade in the region.

On December 12th, 2022, a group of Azerbaijanis, who presented themselves as ecologists, blocked the Lachin corridor (the only highway linking Armenia with Nagorno-Karabakh).

Meanwhile Baku assured that civilian vehicles could circulate freely in both directions of the land route, Yerevan considers these events to represent a provocation aimed at creating humanitarian catastrophe in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Pashinián declared in a meeting of the Armenian Government that the blockade had caused a shortage of food in the region, and on December 14th he appealed to the European Court of Human Rights in order to force the unblocking of the corridor.

Nagorno-Karabakh is a region with a majority of Armenian population, but located within the territory of Azerbaijan; Yerevan and Baku have fought several wars for its possession since its secession in 1988 from what was then the Azerbaijani SSR.
