US Department of State: Officials from Baku and representatives from Stepanakert should convene without delay to agree on the means of transporting critical provisions to Nagorno-Karabakh, including additional supply routes

The U.S. is deeply concerned about deteriorating
humanitarian conditions in Nagorno-Karabakh resulting from the continued
blockage of food, medicine, and other goods essential to a dignified existence.
Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State Matthew Miller made a statement
on this.

“The United States has worked continuously with the sides
over the past several weeks to allow humanitarian assistance to reach the
population of Nagorno-Karabakh.  We reiterate our call to immediately
re-open the Lachin corridor to humanitarian, commercial, and passenger traffic.

Further, officials from Baku and representatives from
Stepanakert should convene without delay to agree on the means of transporting
critical provisions to the men, women, and children of Nagorno-Karabakh –
including additional supply routes – and resume discussions on all outstanding
issues.  Basic humanitarian assistance should never be held hostage to
political disagreements,” reads the statement.
