France calls on Azerbaijan to restore free movement through the Lachin Corridor

YEREVAN, JULY 27, ARMENPRESS. France calls on Azerbaijan to fulfill its international obligations, in particular, to fulfill the February 22 decision of the International Court of Justice and to ensure free movement through the Lachin Corridor, ARMENPRESS reports, this was emphasized in the statement issued by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs regarding the blocking of the Lachin corridor.

"France expresses its regret on the occasion of Azerbaijan's persistent blocking of the Lachin Corridor, which contradicts the obligations undertaken under the ceasefire agreement and harms the negotiation process," the statement said.

France expresses its full support for the July 26 statement of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy regarding the humanitarian situation affecting the population of Nagorno Karabakh.

"France calls on Azerbaijan to fulfill its international obligations, in particular, to apply the provisional measures mentioned in the decision of the International Court of February 22, which are mandatory. France calls for the restoration of the free movement of cargo, people and goods in both directions through the Lachin Corridor and the continuous supply of gas and electricity to the population," the Ministry's statement said.

The statement also recalls the message of the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs during his visit to Armenia and Azerbaijan at the end of April: France, together with the EU, remains fully committed to the establishment of a stable and just peace in the region.

On July 26, 361 tons of humanitarian aid was sent from Armenia to Nagorno Karabakh in 19 trucks. On July 26, the humanitarian aid reached Kornidzor, the entrance to Lachin Corridor. Armenia requested that the representatives of the Russian peacekeeping troops stationed in Nagorno-Karabakh accept the cargo and transport it to Nagorno-Karabakh, where a humanitarian crisis has been established as a result of the illegal blockade of the Lachin Corridor for 8 months.
