France, US urge ‘immediate’ end to Nagorno Karabakh blockade


YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 10, ARTSAKHPRESS. French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna and United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussed the situation between Armenia and Azerbaijan in a phone conversation and took stock of the efforts under way to “resolve the conflict and to underline the need for an immediate restoration of free movement along the Lachin corridor,” the French foreign ministry said in a read-out.

“The grave humanitarian consequences of the ongoing blockage on the population of Nagorno-Karabakh are not acceptable and France and the United States are combining their efforts to put an end to this situation, through their contacts between Prime Minister Pashinyan and President Aliyev,” the foreign ministry added.

The blockade of Nagorno Karabakh began on 12 December 2022, when Azerbaijan blocked the Lachin corridor.
