RA Deputy Defense Minister Arman Sargsyan stated this in the National Assembly of Armenia at a meeting of the Standing Parliamentary Commission on Defense and Security during the discussion of the draft law on amendments to the law "On the State Border" on October 19, in response to one of the opposition MPs to clarify, has this process taken place, as the Armenian National Security Service uses the term "state border" in its statements to describe the situation around Mount Pela?

"Even between Armenia and Georgia, the process is not completed. Even between Russia and its neighbors, the process is not completed. We are dealing with controversial issues that have been discussed for years. Of course, it is not good that today we are forced to discuss such topics, including which maps should be used. I want to emphasize once again that there was no delimitation and demarcation process, " he summed up. To note, yesterday the National Security Service of the Republic of Armenia announced that the Armenian border guards continue to serve on Mount Pela.
