The Director of the European Department presented the difficult security situation in the South Caucasus and Armenia’s ongoing efforts to establish peace. Touching upon the recent aggressive actions of Azerbaijan and the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh due to the illegal blockade of the Lachin corridor, he noted that Azerbaijan’s actions are aimed at disrupting efforts to establish peace in the region.
