The ICRC office is the only international organization in Artsakh that is deemed an impartial source of information, reporting the current situation in our country. Artsakh State Minister Gurgen Nersisyan said this outside the ICRC office in Artsakh.
“I regret to announce that according to the information we have, the complete picture of the situation in Artsakh is not presented to the international organizations. Words of gratitude apart, I would also like to mention that, next to all of this, Azerbaijan only allows us to transfer people to hospitals one by one when they are in a critical condition and are near death. Let us not consider this mercy toward the people of Artsakh,” the state minister said.
He stated that the people of Artsakh are not begging for mercy.
“I reserve the right to demand on behalf of everybody that
in the shortest possible time, the ICRC office in Stepanakert undertake the
initiative to provide all international organizations with the most accurate
information on the situation facing Artsakh, namely being denied access to
drinking water supplies, medicine, proper medical care, and many other
problems, such as movement restrictions, the incident of children’s death and
the reasons for the overall situation,” the state minister said.
