Official: Armenia ready for demarcation of borders with Azerbaijan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia is ready for delimitation and demarcation of borders with Azerbaijan, Secretary of the Security Council Armen Grigoryan told journalists on Friday, September 3, Sputnik Armenia reports.

However, no work in this direction is currently underway. According to the official, the Armenian side is now waiting for a response from Azerbaijan. Grigoryan hopes that this response will be a positive one, which will allow to work on the early resolution of the border crisis.

Azerbaijani forces violated Armenia’s border in several sections in the provinces of Syunik and Gegharkunik on May 12 and 13 and are still refusing to withdraw their troops from the area. Since then, almost a dozen Armenian servicemen have been killed in Azerbaijan’s shooting, a dozen others have been wounded, while six troops were captured on May 27, although four of them have already returned home.
