The head of the European Council mentioned the Lachin-Khankendi road issue and shared his concern over the latest clashes on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Baku supports the Brussels process, Ilham Aliyev said. The Lachin road is not blocked, the opposite assertions of Armenia are false, he stressed, recalling that since the beginning of the eco-action, about 5,000 cars have passed along the road. The Azerbaijani president pointed out that the supply of weapons, ammunition and fighters by the Armenian side continues on the territory. Moreover, the leadership of Armenia makes dangerous statements that could lead to the escalation.
