Prime Minister of Armenia again attached importance to deploying an international fact-finding mission to Nagorno Karabakh and Lachin corridor and highlighted the need to carry out consistent work to achieve this.
Speaking at the January 26 Cabinet meeting, Nikol Pashinyan said that expelling the Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh from their homes isn’t the only goal of Azerbaijan.
“With its provocations, Azerbaijan seeks to also disrupt the peace agenda, the negotiations of the peace process, and instigate a new war in the region.
Understandably, all of us are dealing with the Lachin corridor closure and the humanitarian crisis n Nagorno Karabakh very emotionally. But I must once again underscore the need for restraint around this situation and exclusion of lexicon or actions which contradict the peace agenda, moreover by representatives of the state authorities. We continue to be consistent in our efforts of advancing the peace agenda and no provocation should be able to deviate us from this agenda”, - said the Prime Minister of Armenia.
He thanked the countries and organizations who’ve made an objective and unbiased reaction to the situation, based on human rights and international obligations assumed by countries.
