The International Court of Justice has begun hearings in the case "Azerbaijan v. Armenia".
Yesterday, "Armenia v. Azerbaijan" hearings were held, during which the lawyers urged to open the Lachin corridor and end the blockade of Nagorno-Karabakh.
“The Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh has been almost entirely cut off from the outside world,” Lawrence Martin, a lawyer representing Armenia, told judges Monday. “They have been — and they continue to be — deprived of access to food, medicine and all the other necessities of life. Without swift action by the court their lives are in danger.”
Earlier, on Jan. 23, after nearly a year of preparatory work, international legal affairs representative Yeghishe Kirakosyan submitted to the International Court of Justice, on behalf of the Republic of Armenia, the full complaint and claims of Armenia against Azerbaijan under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
