Pope Francis renews appeal for “grave humanitarian situation in Lachin Corridor in South Caucusus” amid Azeri blockade
YEREVAN, JANUARY 30, ARMENPRESS. Pope Francis again expressed concern over the illegal blockade of the Lachin corridor by Azerbaijan.
The Pope renewed his appeal for the “grave humanitarian situation in the Lachin Corridor in the South Caucusus."
“I am close to all those who, in the dead of winter, are forced to cope with these inhumane conditions. Every effort must be made at the international level to find peaceful solutions for the good of people,” Vatican News quoted Pope Francis as saying in St. Peter’s Square following the Angelus prayer.
Pope Francis had addressed the humanitarian consequences of the blockade of Lachin Corridor on December 18, 2022 as well.
The Lachin Corridor is Nagorno-Karabakh’s land link with Armenia, and has been blocked by Azerbaijan since December 12, 2022.
