Both the Russian troops and the Armenian population are leaving the route known as the “Lachin corridor”, which was temporarily given to Russian soldiers in accordance with the tripartite declaration signed on November 10, 2020 between Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia after the 2nd Karabakh War.
According to the 10 November 2020 statement, Azerbaijan was going to build a new road passing outside the city of Lachin, which the Armenian population in Karabakh would use on their way to and from Armenia within 3 years. Azerbaijan completed this 32-kilometer road earlier than planned. Armenians living in the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan will use the new road to travel to and from Armenia. Russian troops providing security on the route of the old Lachin corridor are also moving the checkpoints to the new road.
As the guest of Seda Anik at the “Daily” program of the Ulusal Channel, Head of the Turkish Institute for Democracy and Human Rights Dr. Ahmad Shahidov evaluated the latest situation in Karabakh.
