Azerbaijan’s failure to abide by world court ruling must lead to concrete international consequences - PM
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 23, ARMENPRESS. Azerbaijan’s failure to abide by the world court’s ruling on opening the Lachin corridor must lead to concrete international consequences, PM Nikol Pashinyan said.
Speaking about the ruling, the Prime Minister said that Azerbaijan must make visible efforts and take actions in the direction of opening the Lachin corridor.
“The first and most primitive step, for example, can be a call or demand made by the highest circle of government addressed to the so-called eco-activists to open the corridor. An absence of concrete actions by Azerbaijan on opening the Lachin corridor can and must lead to concrete international consequences,” the PM said.
The United Nations’ highest court – the International Court of Justice - ordered Azerbaijan on Wednesday to “take all steps at its disposal” to ensure unimpeded movement of persons, vehicles and cargo along the Lachin Corridor in both directions. The Lachin Corridor is blocked by Azerbaijan since 12 December 2022.
