Azerbaijan – Lachin corridor (23 April 2023)


France regrets Azerbaijan’s establishment of a checkpoint at the entrance to the new Lachin Corridor road, which breaches the commitments made under the ceasefire agreements and jeopardizes the negotiation process.

France calls on Azerbaijan to comply with its international obligations, particularly to implement the provisional measures indicated by the International Court of Justice in its order of 22 February, which are binding.

It calls for the free movement of property, people and goods to be restored along the Lachin Corridor, in both directions, and for the population to be continuously supplied with gas and electricity.
