 ICRC increases its contingent in Karabakh

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) President Peter Maurer has announced that contingent of the ICRC in Nagorno-Karabakh will quadruple, AzVision.az reports citing RBK.

"Before the war, the budget of our mission in the region was 10 million Swiss francs, but next year it will be 45 million. Wo, we will quadruple our participation. We have very few employees there. Now we plan to send an additional 400-500 people to the region. We have already increased our participation in recent days, "he added.

Maurer emphasized that the Red Cross has offices in Baku and Yerevan. The committee representatives return to Khankendi and plan to open one or two offices.
