EU calls on Azerbaijan to ensure freedom and security of movement along Lachin corridor


The European Union has been following with serious concern the various developments around the Lachin corridor since the beginning of  December, said a statement on 13 December by Peter Stano, Lead Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

The EU called on the Azerbaijani authorities to ensure freedom and security of movement along the corridor, in line with the trilateral statement of 9 November 2020. “Restrictions to such freedom of movement cause significant distress to the local population and create humanitarian concerns,” the statement said.

Other concerns can and should be addressed through dialogue and consultations with the parties involved, the statement said, adding that the EU reiterated its call for restraint and stood ready to contribute to the above-mentioned efforts.
