Prime Minister of Azerbaijan Ali Asadov has made yet another provocative statement regarding the "Zangezur corridor."
Asadov, presenting the 2022 report on the activities of the government at the Azerbaijani parliament, announced "the great importance of opening international and regional transport-logistics corridors, in particular, the Zangazur [(Zangezur)] corridor," APA reported.
"Azerbaijan continues the work of creating the necessary infrastructure in its territory, within the framework of the Zangazur corridor. The construction work of the Horadiz-Aghbend railway has been completed by 38 percent, and the Horadiz-Jabrayil-Zangilan-Aghbend highway—by 74 percent. The construction of the two roads will be completed in 2024," Asadov said.
To note, the term "Zangezur corridor" refers to Azerbaijan's territorial ambitions towards Armenia.
