Azerbaijan once again ensured the free passage of people of Armenian origin through the Lachin State Border checkpoint, Azernews reports.

Today about 28 people of Armenian origin in 9 vehicles belonging to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) passed through the Lachin State Border checkpoint from Khankendi in the direction of the Gorus district of Armenia. Of which, five were the employees of ICRC, nine were drivers, seven were patients, six were escorts and one person was a medic.

It should be noted that this once again indicates the absence of any obstacles and difficulties in the passage of Armenian minority in Garabagh through the Lachin border checkpoint and serves as another proof that Armenia's statements about the 'blockade' of the Lachin road by Azerbaijan are lies and slander .
