Karabakh wants more int'l guarantees for corridor to Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nagorno-Karabakh President Arayik Harutyunyan has said that his country wants additional international guarantees for the Lachin Corridor to ensure the uninterrupted connection of Karabakh with Armenia and the rest of the world.

Harutyunyan made the remarks at a meeting with French lawmakers in Paris on Tuesday, December 6.

Expressing gratitude to the parliamentarians for the adoption of resolutions in support of Karabakh, Harutyunyan noted that such decisions are a political message and fully correspond to the political traditions of France based on the principles of freedom, equality and fraternity. According to him, currently the most important task is to make these political messages a reality, to give them real power. In that context, the President expressed hope that the work towards the recognition of the Republic of Artsakh will be completed by the executive power of France, which will help prevent a new genocide of Armenians in their homeland.

The Head of the State voiced hope that the resolutions adopted by both Houses of the French Parliament that call for the recognition of the Republic of Artsakh will serve as an example for other countries of the world.

Harutyunyan also presented the post-war situation in Artsakh to the French parliamentarians. In particular, he noted that Artsakh is connected to Armenia and the external world by a single road, the 5 km wide Lachin Corridor. "Azerbaijan wants to cut that only and last link with the world, strangling Artsakh. We want the Lachin Corridor to have additional international guarantees to ensure uninterrupted connection of Artsakh with Armenia and the external world," the President noted.

According to the Head of the State, Artsakh anticipates also the active involvement of France in the implementation of humanitarian programs, the return of captivated Armenians and the preservation of endangered Armenian spiritual and cultural heritage in the territories occupied by Azerbaijan.
