Azerbaijani blockade of Lachin corridor is attempt to solve military objective, warns expert
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 3, ARMENPRESS. Military expert Hayk Nahapetyan says that by blocking the Lachin corridor Azerbaijan is trying to solve a concrete military objective.
Speaking at parliamentary hearings initiated by Hayastan faction on a draft statement of parliament regarding the Azerbaijani blockade of Lachin corridor, Nahapetyan said the blockade is an element of warfare by Azerbaijan. He said that usually blockades of territories have a military goal, and not a political one.
“Their first goal, if they launch large-scale military actions in Artsakh then support won’t be able to reach from Armenia, no matter who would send the support, the authorities or volunteers. Second, they are depleting the resource for living for our compatriots of Artsakh. Third, they are exerting significant psychological impact on the people, in order to have swift victory after launching war or military operations. The closure of the Berdzor corridor is not a humanitarian or security task. Azerbaijan is solving a concrete military task,” the military expert said.
