Caucasus (bbabo.net), - China hopes that the countries of the South Caucasus will strengthen dialogue and interaction, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said, commenting on the situation around the Lachin corridor, Armenian media reported today, December 15.
"We hope that the relevant countries in the region will strengthen dialogue and interaction and jointly maintain regional peace and stability, as well as the peaceful life of the people," the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.
Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said earlier Thursday that some of Armenia's friends are keeping a "strange silence" about the situation around the Lachin corridor.
Recall that the protest of Azerbaijani activists in the Shushi region, on one of the sections of the Lachin corridor, which provides the only transport link between Nagorno-Karabakh and the outside world, started on the morning of December 12 and led to the blockade of the unrecognized republic. Later, an energy blockade was added to this - the gas supply to Stepanakert and the settlements adjacent to the Karabakh capital was stopped.
