UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has confirmed that relevant UN agencies are ready to cooperate with Russia in the Nagorno-Karabakh region to undertake humanitarian assessment on the ground.

“The UN Secretary-General has made clear publicly, we hope that the cessation of hostilities will enable humanitarian actors to have the necessary access to all people in need in all areas affected by the conflict, including people displaced by the conflict,” UN Secretary General’s Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said during a press briefing.
