Armenians start using new route to Karabakh

European Council President Charles Michel held telephone conversations with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in preparation for a meeting tomorrow in Brussels.

Starting at 8 p.m. local time, Armenians stopped using the current route along the Lachin corridor to travel between Armenia and Karabakh, relocating to a new road.

The Armenian Foreign Ministry welcomed the decision of French and U.S. diplomats stationed in Azerbaijan not to attend a conference in the Karabakh city of Shushi.
