Yet another process of Armenian Genocide must be stopped. Caroline Cox


YEREVAN, JANUARY 14, ARTSAKHPRESS. Baroness Caroline Cox, a member of the House of Lords of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, sent an urgent letter to the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the House of Commons regarding the blocking of the Lachine Corridor by Azerbaijan, calling for an investigation into the security situation in Nagorno Karabakh and an making an urgent report. He emphasized that yet another process of implementation of the Armenian Genocide should be prevented.

ARMENPRESS reports Baroness Caroline Cox emphasized in her letter that the Lachin Corridor, the only road connecting Armenia to Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh), has been blocked for more than a month by the so-called Azerbaijani eco-activists. 120,000 residents of the Republic of Artsakh are facing severe economic, humanitarian and health problems as a result of being cut off from the outside world.

She also emphasized on a number of problems, noting that only a small number of patients were allowed to be transported to Armenia through the mediation of the Red Cross, but there are many, including people with cancer, who need chemotherapy and cannot receive it.

“The Security Council of the Republic of Artsakh has issued a statement emphasizing the “imminenence of a new genocide” and calling on the international community to take responsibility for preventing terrorist acts carried out by Azerbaijan,” Caroline Cox emphasized.

He mentioned the disconnection of families as a result of blocking the corridor, the damage to the electricity supply line from Armenia to Artsakh and Azerbaijan’s obstruction of its restoration and its severe consequences.

She mentioned the division of families as a result of blocking the corridor, the damage to the electricity supply line from Armenia to Artsakh and Azerbaijan’s obstruction of its restoration and its severe consequences.

“Although the United Kingdom Ambassador to Armenia John Gallagher denied allegations of UK culpability in the failure of the UN Security Council statement on the Lachin Corridor, Azerbaijan’s Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg Vagif Sadigov “expressed gratitude” to Great Britain on December 31 thwarting this statement. This deepened the fear that our government’s good relations with Azerbaijan, which are based on oil interests, will take precedence over the lives of the people of Nagorno Karabakh,” she said.

Baroness Caroline Cox therefore asked the Foreign Affairs Committee to:

  Start an investigation of the security situation in Nagorno Karabakh

  1. Urgently submit a report on its results to the Office of Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office,
  2. To meet with representatives of the Armenian diaspora to assess the reality in the light of Azerbaijan’s disinformation campaign

“The process of another Armenian Genocide must be stopped now,” concluded Baroness Caroline Cox.

Since December 12, 2022 Azerbaiajn keeps the only highway connecting Artsakh to the world, the Lachin Corridor, closed, citing false environmental reasons. In addition, on January 9, an accident was recorded in the 33rd km of the only high-voltage line feeding Artsakh from Armenia. The accident occured in the Aghavno-Berdzor section. Azerbaijan does not allow restoration works to be carried out.

In Artsakh, internet connection supply was also interrupted from January 12. the cable was damaged in the very part of the Lachin Corridor, where the Azerbaijani pseudo-environmentalists are stationed. And only on January 13, thanks to the negotiations conducted by the Russian peacekeeping troops stationed in Artsakh, the technical specialists of “Karabakh Telecom” Company were able to go to the place of the accident and carry out appropriate work on the spot to restore the damaged part of the cable. Internet connection has been restored in the entire territory of the Republic of Artsakh.
