Azerbaijani President announces new Lachin corridor

Within the next three years, the Azerbaijani authorities intend to build a new road between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia instead of the Lachin corridor, as well as to create a transport corridor between the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic and Azerbaijan.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on December 1, the Azerbaijani army took control over the Lachin District, with the exception of the corridor providing communication between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia. This is the last of the three districts supposed to be taken over by Azerbaijan in accordance with the armistice agreement.

The new Lachin transport corridor should be built to replace the existing one, since its route passes through the city of Lachin, announces President Ilham Aliev. He has also added that Azerbaijan is already negotiating with the "Russian Railways" Company, which owns the "Armenian Railway" Company, concerning the development of transport corridors in the Transcaucasia. Armenia can benefit from cargo flows, the "Vedomosti" quotes Ilham Aliev as saying.
