Nagorno-Karabakh accepts offer on simultaneously opening Aghdam route and Lachin Corridor for humanitarian goods
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 17, ARMENPRESS. Nagorno-Karabakh authorities have agreed to the proposal on simultaneously carrying out humanitarian shipments by ICRC vehicles along Lachin Corridor and the Aghdam route, the Nagorno-Karabakh official InfoCenter reported.
“The crisis resulting from the Azerbaijani blockade of Artsakh is deteriorating day by day. The government is organizing the process of obtaining grain and supplying flour to bread bakeries in scarce conditions, and unfortunately, it’s not always possible to ensure the 200 gram of bread envisaged daily for every citizen by the ration stamp system. Taking into consideration the deteriorating disaster and security situation in the country, the authorities of the Republic of Artsakh have made a decision to accept the joint proposal of the International Committee of the Red Cross Stepanakert office and the Russian peacekeeping contingent’s command on simultaneous shipment of humanitarian goods along the Berdzor [Lachin] corridor through the Goris-Stepanakert highway and the Akna [Aghdam]-Stepanakert road by ICRC vehicles (goods of foreign origin).
"Organizing this process is necessary both for eliminating the threats facing the lives and health of our citizens, as well as for ensuring the future transport of humanitarian goods along Berdzor corridor,” the Nagorno-Karabakh InfoCenter said in a statement.
