The opening of the Aghdam-Khankandi road for the delivery of a truck with food and other cargo from the Russian Red Cross Society for the Armenian residents of Karabakh is undeniably a positive development, UK political scientist and journalist Neil Watson told Report.
“The signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Russian Red Cross Society and Azerbaijan’s Red Crescent Society, in full conformity with Azerbaijani legislation, recognizing Azerbaijani territorial integrity, ensured the delivery of supplies to Khankandi, and I am glad this effort has succeeded, as Karabakh Armenians are Azerbaijani citizens, and Azerbaijan does not starve its nationals,” he noted.
“The Armenian separatists are gradually caving in, with the Russian role achieving some positive recognition from Baku.”
On the morning of September 12, food cargo from the Russian Red Cross Society for the Armenian residents of Karabakh was delivered on Aghdam-Khankandi road. Previously, the truck was in Barda for two days because the Karabakh separatists refused to let it through.
