State Minister of Artsakh: Patients coming from Artsakh to Armenia are examined by Azerbaijani doctors at the Berdzor checkpoint

State Minister of Artsakh: Patients coming from Artsakh to Armenia are examined by Azerbaijani doctors at the Berdzor checkpoint

“Azerbaijan allows the Red Cross to carry out the transportation of patients, in the process it also allowed the supply of medicine,” State Minister of Artsakh Gurgen Nersisyan notes, referring to the situation in Artsakh.

According to the State Minister, all this has always been a long process.

“Each time they created new obstacles or requested different information from the Red Cross, and the process lasted up to a week. Azerbaijan’s ingenuity knows no bounds. We reached a point when Azerbaijan involved their doctors at the checkpoint and set a condition before the Red Cross that the patients leaving Artsakh for Armenia should undergo additional examination at the checkpoint. Moreover, if necessary, the examination can be combined with the undressing of our citizens,” says Nersisyan.
