YEREVAN, DECEMBER 15, ARMENPRESS. Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia Aram I urged the international community to intervene with all possible measures to reopen the Lachin Corridor – the only land connection of Artsakh with Armenia and the rest of the world – which is blocked by Azerbaijan.
“This step by Azerbaijan is a manifestation of genocide because in these conditions the Armenians of Artsakh could appear in a pandemic of disease and famine. Thus, the international community has no right to be indifferent and silent towards the violation of humanitarian and humane laws and principles,” the Catholicos said.
The Catholicos’ call was conveyed to inter-church, inter-religious and other international organizations.
