The United States is deeply concerned about the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in Nagorno-Karabakh. This is noted in a press statement by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

“We note that humanitarian supplies are positioned near both the Lachin and Aghdam routes, and we repeat our call for the immediate and simultaneous opening of both corridors to allow passage of desperately needed humanitarian supplies to the men, women, and children in Nagorno-Karabakh. We also urge leaders against taking any actions that raise tensions or distract from this goal. The use of force to resolve disputes is unacceptable.

“In light of the recent increase in tensions in the South Caucasus, the United States will continue to strongly support efforts by Armenia and Azerbaijan to resolve outstanding issues through direct dialogue, with the aim of achieving a dignified and enduring peace. We reiterate that any peace agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan must protect the rights and security of the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh. We also encourage dialogue between Baku and residents of Nagorno-Karabakh.

“The United States further reaffirms the only way forward is peace, dialogue, and the normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan on the basis of mutual respect for each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the aforesaid press statement added.

And in order to avoid excessive stress, other things, it is desirable to follow the official information, we publicize everything. Arman Sargsyan, Deputy Minister of Defense of Armenia, told this to reporters Monday in the National Assembly.

Regarding the remark that there are videos showing that Azerbaijan is stockpiling offensive weapons at the border with Armenia, the deputy defense minister said: “I will not say professionally, it is clearly visible there, and it seems that they are artillery means, it is a number of military equipment. It has been talked about; I don’t want to talk about it one more time. I will only urge you to follow our information, we regularly provide information immediately in case of certain escalations or up to fire from small firearms. The MoD [of Armenia] naturally takes steps within its authority to not destabilize the situation in the region and in terms of not having any negative impact on the general situation. Our region is such that there is a risk of escalation, but we, as a state, must take steps so that it does not come to escalation, in general, to major military actions.”

My #Opinion: #NikolPashinyan had the #courage and the #wisdom to acknowledge and to express the #truth openly: #Russia is not able or willing to guarantee the #security of #Armenia and #NagornoKarabakh (despite Ms. #Zakharova’s protestations). This opens the new road to the major #realignment in the South Caucasus. This conflict is not about #Religion, it is about #Geopolitics. #IlhamAliyev should also have the wisdom and courage to take the extended hand, which in fact this development is. It seems to me that the future of the South Caucasus states which share the same #geography, #history, and #culture, is the #FEDERATION of the three republics: #Azerbaijan, #Georgia, #Armenia, and the smaller entities related to them. This region is the ancient part of the #WesternCivilization, although on the very (#Caspian) cusp of it. Allied together and with the #WesternWorld, this future Federation Of the South Caucasus will be strong, #independent, and organic part of the crossroads between the new, emerging #MiddleEast, #Russia, and #Europe.
