Foreign Ministry: During the occupation, Armenia illegally exploited Azerbaijan’s Chardagly coal mine
Baku, February 27, AZERTAC
“During the occupation, Armenia also extracted coal from the Chardagly mine in Azerbaijan’s Tartar district for use in the Yerevan thermal power plant in Armenia,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on arbitration case filed by Azerbaijan against Armenia under the Energy Charter Treaty for illegal exploitation of Azerbaijan’s energy resources.
“Eventually, Armenia facilitated its illegal exploitation of Azerbaijan’s hydropower and coal resources by constructing additional energy infrastructure on Azerbaijan’s territory. For example, Armenia funded the construction of a new coal-transport highway, described as a “direct lifeline” between Armenia and the occupied territories that would play “an instrumental role” in Armenia’s security,” the ministry said.
