The situation in Nagorno-Karabakh is very concerning, US Senator Gary Peters said in Kornidzor.
"I think there needs to be some visibility [for the international community]. Certainly people are very fearful. The world should know exactly what is happening there. We heard from the Azerbaijani government that there is nothing to see, nothing to worry about. If that's the case, we should allow international observers to enter [Nagorno-Karabakh] to get to know the situation on the ground,” he noted.
According to the senator, he spoke with many people who are extremely concerned about their families and loved ones.
"They have been suffering for many months because of this blockade. There is a shortage of food, medical supplies and fuel. The situation is dire. I will tell my colleagues in the United States about all this so that we make efforts to bring international observers into Nagorno-Karabakh and see what is really happening, as well as to make sure that the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh are treated with dignity and respect and that their rights are preserved," Peters concluded.
