We Reaffirm Blinken's Call for Immediate Reopening of Lachin Corridor: US Embassy to Armenia

Lachin Corridor

Amidst escalating concerns over the humanitarian crisis in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), the United States and its diplomatic allies are amplifying calls for the immediate reopening of the vital Lachin corridor. U.S. Acting Deputy Chief of Mission John Allelo, together with fellow members of the diplomatic corps, journeyed to the Syunik region on Friday to witness firsthand the dire impact of the corridor's ongoing blockade.

The U.S. Embassy issued a resounding statement reaffirming Secretary of State Antony Blinken's plea for urgent action. "Acting DCM John Allelo joined the diplomatic corps in Syunik and heard from displaced persons and regional officials about the suffering caused by continued blockage of the Lachin corridor. We reiterate Secretary Blinken's call for an immediate reopening of the corridor to commercial and private traffic," the statement emphasized.

The Lachin corridor, a vital lifeline for essential supplies, has remained obstructed, exacerbating an already dire humanitarian situation in Artsakh. As the international community unites in its efforts to alleviate suffering and restore normalcy, the urgency to restore unfettered access through the corridor is increasingly pressing.
