Armenia files lawsuit against Azerbaijan with ICJ

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia has filed a lawsuit against Azerbaijan in the International Court of Justice within the proceedings of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Armenia's Representative on International Legal matters Yeghishe Kirakosyan has said.

Armenia has applied to the Hague Court with a request to apply interim measures and oblige Azerbaijan to stop organizing and supporting the alleged "demonstrations" that have blocked free movement in both directions through the Lachin corridor. In addition, Armenia has asked the court to oblige Azerbaijan to ensure the unhindered free movement of all people, vehicles and goods along the Lachin corridor in both directions.

For almost 20 days now, the key road has been blocked by Azerbaijanis who claim to be environmentalists. Azerbaijan had also deprived the people of Karabakh of gas supplies.
