Artsakh Officials Discuss Humanitarian Crisis with MEP François-Xavier Bellamy


YEREVAN ( — Artsakh’s Deputy Foreign Minister Feliks Khachatryan, State Minister’s Advisor Artak Beglaryan and Human Rights Defender Gegham Stepanyan held a meeting with French Member of the European Parliament François-Xavier Bellamy on February 12.

The meeting took place at Artsakh’s Permanent Representation in Armenia.

The officials discussed the consequences of the humanitarian crisis caused by Azerbaijan’s ongoing blockade of Artsakh as well as efforts to counter its criminal policy, the ombudsman said in a social media post on Sunday.

“I thanked him for endorsing the European Parliament resolution on the humanitarian crisis in Artsakh resulting from the Azerbaijani blockade of the Goris-Stepanakert highway (known as the Lachin corridor under the trilateral statement) and his unceasing support for the Artsakh people’s rights, freedoms and security,” he wrote.
