China has expressed concern over the current situation n Lachin corridor and its humanitarian impact.
“We believe that the disputes surrounding the Lachin Corridor should be resolved through dialogue and consultation. Russia has done a lot of work and made positive progress in this regard, which China welcomes. We hope that with the mediation of Russia and other relevant parties, the disputes between Armenia and Azerbaijan surrounding the Lachin Corridor can be resolved as soon as possible,” Ambassador Geng Shuang at the Security Council Open Meeting on the Lachin Corridor.
“Armenia and Azerbaijan are neighbors, and realizing common security and common development through cooperation conforms to the fundamental interests of the two countries. In recent years, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia have successively issued four joint statements, respectively making arrangements for the cessation of hostilities, economic and transportation cooperation, and border issues, reflecting the political will of the two countries to resolve disputes through political and diplomatic means,” he said.
“We encourage Armenia and Azerbaijan to meet each other halfway on the basis of the joint statements and with the mediation of Russia and other relevant parties, and properly resolve disputes between the two countries in accordance with generally recognized international laws and norms governing international relations. China supports any diplomatic efforts that help to achieve this goal and will also play a constructive role in this regard,” the Ambassador said.
