The created situation is the gross violation of paragraph 6  of trilateral statement of November 9, 2020. The free movement along  the corridor will be restored without delay.  Today, it is more than  urgent the need of increasing the pressure on Azerbaijan by the  international community," the Deputy Speaker of Parliament  underlined.

We stress the necessity of operating or resuming the  international mechanisms, including the monitoring mechanisms to  ensure the rights and security of Nagorno Karabakh Armenians," he  stated.
