Armenian Embassy Urges Int'l Action to Prevent Ethnic Cleansing in Artsakh Amid Ongoing Blockade

Lachin Coridor

The Armenian Embassy to Sweden has issued a fervent call for the international community to take immediate action to prevent what it calls "ethnic cleansing" in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). The embassy's appeal follows the continued full blockade of the Lachin Corridor and Artsakh by Azerbaijan, hindering the delivery of crucial humanitarian supplies.

In a strongly worded statement, the Armenian Embassy underscored the dire humanitarian situation unfolding as a result of the blockade. "Azerbaijan stops the delivery of around 400 tons of essential humanitarian goods to the people of Nagorno-Karabakh thus subjecting them to ethnic cleansing," the Embassy tweeted. The gravity of the situation prompted the embassy to emphasize the urgency of international intervention. "The international community must react to prevent it. Every second matters," the tweet continued.

The Lachin Corridor, a vital lifeline for delivering humanitarian aid to Artsakh, has remained closed, further exacerbating the humanitarian crisis for the citizens there. The blockade has raised concerns about the well-being of the local population, which is heavily reliant on aid for basic necessities.

The ongoing attacks on the population of Artsakh have garnered international attention since the war in 2020. The blockade has only intensified the challenges faced by the people of Artsakh, leaving them increasingly vulnerable to the ramifications of restricted access to essential supplies.

Armenia's appeal to the international community highlights the pressing need for diplomatic efforts to address the situation promptly. The call for action emphasizes the importance of preventing any form of violence, displacement, or human rights violations in the region.

As the Armenian Embassy's message reverberates, the international community faces mounting pressure to address the unfolding crisis and ensure the well-being and security of the population in Nagorno-Karabakh.
