AGHDAM, Azerbaijan, August 30. A convoy with humanitarian aid sent by the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society to people of Armenian origin living in Karabakh is still waiting on the Aghdam-Khankendi road, Trend's Karabakh Bureau reports.

Since yesterday, two trucks carrying 40 tons of wheat have been parked in front of the Russian peacekeepers' position on the Aghdam-Khankendi route.

Russian peacekeepers who were temporarily stationed on Azerbaijani soil were given a certificate attesting to the quality of the delivered cargo by representatives of the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society.

The Aghdam-Khankendi route has been reached by a convoy of humanitarian aid that the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society dispatched to residents of Karabakh who are of Armenian descent. The humanitarian cargo is currently being discussed by Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society members and Russian peacemakers.

The President of the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society, Novruz Aslan said that in the future, other necessary goods may be delivered to residents of Armenian origin living in Karabakh.

The remnants of the separatist regime in Karabakh have long been trying in various ways to convince the world community and international organizations that Azerbaijan, by establishing a border crossing point on the Lachin road, is allegedly keeping the Armenian residents of Karabakh under "blockade", has created a "humanitarian crisis situation" for them, and that the Armenians are allegedly facing "food shortages". Armenia, which continues to manipulate the existence of an alleged "tense humanitarian situation" and "blockade" in the region, is hindering the peace process instead of following through on the agreements reached to resolve issues related to the use of the Lachin road and other alternative roads to meet the needs of the Armenian residents of the Karabakh region.

The Azerbaijani side once again demonstrates a humanistic approach and sends humanitarian aid to citizens of Armenian origin living in Karabakh.
