Paris mayor leads relief effort for blockade-hit Artsakh
An aid convoy left Yerevan on Wednesday morning for the border with blockaded Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) as part of a relief effort led by Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.
Hidalgo arrived in Armenia to personally lead a humanitarian convoy to the entrance of the Lachin Corridor, Artsakh’s sole land link with Armenia blocked by Azerbaijan. She is accompanied by other officials from Paris and French regions.
The new convoy will join the Armenian humanitarian convoy and the previously sent French aid truck stranded at the entrance to Lachin Corridor in the village of Kornidzor because of the Azerbaijani blockade.
“For nine months, 120,000 Armenians in Artsakh, including 30,000 children, have been isolated, starving and deprived of everything. Faced with this humanitarian catastrophe, we are providing them with emergency aid. Time is running out,” Hidalgo said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).
