“The Government of the Republic of Artsakh once again reaffirms that the mining industry in Artsakh is carried out according to the highest international standards, to which the regulations defined by the legislation of the sector are also aligned. Considering, however, the unhealthy environment created by the “eco-activists” of the neighboring country and the attempts to mislead the international community, it was decided to turn to international organizations to conduct an international ecological examination related to the activities of the “Base Metals” company.
Together with the management of the company, a decision was made to temporarily stop the operation of the c mine until the examination is completed.
The Government of the Republic of Artsakh has appealed to the relevant structures of the United Nations and other international professional organizations to organize the implementation of the examination in a short period of time.
The Government of the Republic of Artsakh has always been in favor of maintaining the best international standards in the field of mining and is convinced that international environmental standards should be applicable to the mining companies of the entire region,” the statement said.
Since December 12, Azerbaijan continues to keep the only road connecting Artsakh to the world, the Lachin Corridor, closed, citing false environmental reasons.
