Azerbaijan states conditions for opening Lachin Corridor


YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 12, ARMENPRESS. Azerbaijan has again put forward conditions for opening the Lachin Corridor.

Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesperson Aykhan Hajizada has said that the International Committee of the Red Cross will be allowed to transport goods along Lachin Corridor if the Aghdam-Stepanakert road opens.

He said that Azerbaijan is ready to create the conditions for the shipments of goods through the Lachin border checkpoint in line with border and customs control in parallel with the use of the Aghdam-Stepanakert road.

He described the transfer of the Russian aid through the Aghdam-Stepanakert road as a ‘positive step and important progress in the direction of opening that road.’

However, a Nagorno-Karabakh representative earlier said the Russian aid was let through under the condition that the Lachin Corridor would be opened.
