Ambassador of Japan to Armenia calls for freedom and security of movement along Lachin Corridor

Ambassador of Japan to Armenia Masanori Fukushima is calling for de-escalation of tensions and freedom and security of movement along the Lachin Corridor.

"I am concerned by the reports of the developments around the Lachin corridor. I urge the sides to de-escalate tensions and to ensure freedom and security of movement along the corridor, in line with the arrangements that the sides have agreed," Ambassador Fukushima said in a statement released by the Embassy of Japan in Armenia.

The Lachin Corridor is blocked by Azerbaijan since 12 December 2022. The corridor is the only travel and supply route for the 120,000 Armenians of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh). The blockade has caused a humanitarian crisis. Shortages of essential products such as food and medicine prompted Nagorno Karabakh authorities to introduce rationing. Hospitals are keeping planned surgeries on hold. 1,100 residents of Nagorno Karabakh, including 270 children who were in Armenia when the road was blocked are unable to return to their homes.
