If the first humanitarian cargo sent to Khankendi is accepted, the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society can continue this process, chairman of the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society (ARCS), deputy Novruz Aslan said, APA's Karabakh correspondent reports.
He said that this is a chain process: "If necessary, humanitarian cargoes will be sent again. This issue hangs on both sides. We can learn about the needs of the Armenians living in Karabakh from other sources and through negotiations with them. We have partners. For example, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the International Federation of the Red Cross and Crescent. According to the mandate of the International Committee of the Red Cross, the possibilities are wider. We can get feedback from them. The Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society is here to implement its mission and goodwill. I believe that every party - whether it is the international community or our citizens of Armenian origin living in the Karabakh economic zone - will understand us correctly.
This is also a test. If the other party does not want to accept food aid, questions arise here as well. The first question is, if there is a need, why don't they accept it? The second question is that if we are human, if our creation is one, how long will this enmity last? The position presented here is our good faith. The stated position is that the Red Crescent Society is determined to implement its mission in every territory of Azerbaijan, including the Karabakh economic zone. We are ready to be close to the vulnerable in Karabakh and Khankendi."
