A regular Cabinet meeting took place today, chaired by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

Before discussing the issues on the agenda, the Prime Minister referred to the extremely difficult humanitarian situation in Nagorno-Karabakh resulted by the illegal blocking of the Lachin Corridor by Azerbaijan, the Baku-Stepanakert dialogue.

The Prime Minister, in particular, said,

"Dear participants of the Cabinet Meeting,
Dear people,

The situation along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border continues to be tense. Azerbaijan continues to move its troops along the state border with Armenia and the line of contact with Nagorno-Karabakh. The humanitarian situation in Nagorno Karabakh is extremely difficult.

The one truckload of Russian humanitarian cargo that entered Askeran recently cannot have any visible impact on the situation. Some of the humanitarian goods sent by Armenia and France, in 22 trucks, are still waiting not far from the Lachin corridor, near Kornidzor for the opportunity to enter Nagorno-Karabakh. Another, larger amount of cargo is nearby.

The international community continues to call for an end to the illegal blockade of the Lachin Corridor. All possible diplomatic efforts are being made to ensure the entry of humanitarian cargo into Nagorno-Karabakh and further supplies. It is important to emphasize that the representatives of Nagorno Karabakh are fully involved in these negotiations and discussions. We should hope that a reliable international mechanism of Baku-Stepanakert dialogue will be created, and we encourage our partners in Stepanakert to engage in such dialogue. I would also like to inform that the Republic of Armenia has received new comments from Azerbaijan regarding the text of the peace treaty with Armenia. We will work and provide our comments within a reasonable time.

Peace in our region has no alternative and is the only solution that guarantees the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and security of the countries in our region, which is a necessary and fundamental condition for normal development and progress. And today, also in this sense, it is urgent to overcome the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh, towards which, as I said, we will continue to take all possible measures.

Thank you."
