Head of the press service of the US State Department Ned Price:
"We have clearly stated that the closure of the Lachin corridor has grave humanitarian consequences and delays the peace process. We call on the Government of Azerbaijan to restore free movement along the corridor.
Any suspension of the energy infrastructure, and we have seen reports of suspension of the energy infrastructure, could worsen the humanitarian crisis, especially during the winter months. It is unacceptable to cause [damage] to the civilian population of Nagorno-Karabakh."
