Baku erects new

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Azerbaijanis have installed a new signboard on the road connecting communities in Armenia's Syunik province, which reads "Attention: You are entering the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan" in three languages.

An Aysor.am correspondent reporting from the scene reveals that Azerbaijan's decision to stop and inspect Iranian trucks heading to Armenia has resulted in traffic congestion on the road.

Azerbaijan earlier confirmed that it is collecting money from Iranian truck drivers on the Goris-Kapan interstate road in Armenia's Syunik province. Azeri police officers deployed on said road demand $130 in cash from the drivers of Iranian trucks transporting goods and products to Armenia, a CivilNet correspondent reported.

The National Security Service of Armenia said earlier that the border guards of the National Security Service of Armenia and the guards of the border service of the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation are working together to resolve the situation.
