Over a thousand vehicles carrying supplies to Karabakh have
passed through the Lachin-Khankandi road since the start of the
protests on December 12, 2022, Azernews reports, citing Azerbaijani
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Ayxan Hajizada.
The official made the remarks on his Twitter account in response
to the comments by US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price
during a briefing on January 24.
He underlined that it would be appropriate to call on Armenia to
fulfill its obligations instead.
'Dear @StateDeptSpox, more than 1000 of vehicles bringing supply
into the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan proves the opposite what you
said on January 24. It would be appropriate to call on the Armenian
side to fulfill obligations & stop illegal activities!' Hajizada
Notably, at a briefing held the day before, Price called for the
full restoration of free movement through the Lachin-Khankandi
road, including commercial and private travel.
To recap, following discussions with the command of the Russian
peacekeeping contingent on December 3 and 7, 2022, Azerbaijani
specialists from the Ministries of Economy, Ecology, and Natural
Resources, the State Service for Property Issues under the Ministry
of Economy, and AzerGold Company were to conduct primary monitoring
on illegal exploitation of mineral deposits on Azerbaijani
territory. However, the monitoring failed due to the provocation of
ethnic Armenians. The peaceful protest that started on December 12,
2022, continues up to today and marks Day 36.
