Pashinyan, Putin talk Karabakh crisis over the phone

PanARMENIAN.Net - Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke over the phone on Thursday, February 23 to discuss the humanitarian, environmental and energy crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh resulted by Azerbaijan's illegal blockade of the Lachin Corridor.

The Prime Minister attached importance to the implementation of the necessary steps by the Russian Federation to overcome it. At the same time, the Prime Minister emphasized the ruling of the UN International Court of Justice regarding the unblocking of the Lachin Corridor by Azerbaijan.

Issues related to the implementation of the trilateral agreements of the leaders of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan signed on November 9, 2020, January 11 and November 26, 2021 and October 31, 2022 were discussed.

The sides exchanged thoughts on the process of normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Since December 12, the sole road connecting Nagorno Karabakh to Armenia - the Lachin Corridor - has been blocked by self-described Azerbaijani environmentalists. Karabakh residents have reported food and fuel shortages, while hospital patients don't have access to essential medicines, with only a handful allowed transfer to facilities in Armenia proper.
