ICRC delivers aid to Artsakh via Lachin corridor and Aghdam road

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on 18 September shipped wheat flour and essential medical items to people in need in Artsakh via the Lachin Corridor and the Aghdam road. The shipments were made possible “as a result of persistent diplomatic efforts to find a humanitarian consensus between the decision-makers,” the ICRC said in a statement. 


“I hope that this consensus allows for our strictly humanitarian convoys to resume not just today but in the weeks to come so that we can regularly get aid to those who need it,” said Ariane Bauer, ICRC's regional director for Europe and Central Asia.

The Artsakh InfoCenter confirmed the news of the delivery of aid, providing additional details. According to the InfoCenter statement, 23 tons of flour of Armenian production was delivered to Stepanakert along the Goris-Stepanakert highway through Berdzor (Lachin) corridor, and medical and personal hygiene products of Russian and Swiss production were delivered along the Akna (Aghdam)-Stepanakert road. The statement also said that another delivery of goods by ICRC vehicle is planned to take place from the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don ”in a few days via the same roads”.
