Azerbaijan continues to block humanitarian aid convoy to Nagorno-Karabakh

Azerbaijan continues to block humanitarian aid convoy to Nagorno-Karabakh

YEREVAN, JULY 27, ARMENPRESS. Azerbaijan continues to block a humanitarian aid convoy sent from Armenia from entering Nagorno-Karabakh through Lachin Corridor, which has been blockaded since December 2022.

The convoy carrying 360 tons of food and medication has reached the Kornidzor village of Syunik Province but is unable to enter Lachin Corridor.

An Armenian government official told reporters in Kornidzor that they have asked both the Russian peacekeepers and the Azeri authorities to allow the goods reach their destination, but there’s been no response yet.

“It’s been nearly twenty hours that we are here in Kornidzor village. As you can see, there is no movement. This process requires patience and a certain sequence of steps. As of this moment we haven’t received any response, we are waiting for a response,” said Vardan Sargsyan, a member of the government task force of Armenia in charge of managing the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Sargsyan said the Armenian authorities have contacted the Russian peacekeepers and the Azerbaijani side for letting the goods through. “As I said, we have no response yet,” he added.
