‘Lurer’’s crew is in Kornidzor, where a center has been opened to receive citizens in case of possible transfer from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia.
In a conversation with the ‘Lurer’’s reporter, Karen Balyan, adviser to the Governor of Syunik province, referring to the work of the Governor's office regarding the possible flow of citizens from Nagorno-Karabakh, said:
“In case of possible displacement of our compatriots, a working group was created by the governor's instruction. It is a large working group, which also includes volunteers. These volunteers are mainly students of Goris State University. There are also other volunteers. We are preparing to receive our compatriots in case of possible displacement.
We are now at the first reception stop, where we plan to receive our compatriots and then distribute them to temporary locations. We will figure out our next steps on the spot. In general, I would also like to note that, yes, we are ready to accept our compatriots in case of possible displacement, take care of their needs: housing, food. In that regard, they are also inventorying, and most of the free places where overnight accommodation can be provided for our compatriots, and temporary locations where overnight accommodation can also be provided, have been inventoried. They will be on the scale of the entire province.”
As for the goods that are transported to Nagorno-Karabakh, Karen Balyan mentioned.
“In terms of transporting humanitarian aid, I can only state that the humanitarian cargo that has been waiting here since July 26 to reach Nagorno-Karabakh, that cargo is still standing, and nothing has changed in that regard, and I do not have a clear information about the Red Cross and other trucks. I can't comment.”
Referring to the developments related to the flow from Nagorno-Karabakh, he said the following. “Since we do not receive information from there very well, we cannot say at the moment what possible developments will happen, but in case of possible displacement, we are going to accept our compatriots. Now there is no clear information to know if displacement is taking place from there, we don't have such information yet.”
