Armenia`s premier expounds on Armenia-Azerbaijan border delimitation  process

Armenia`s premier expounds on Armenia-Azerbaijan border delimitation  process

ArmInfo.There are 11 delimitation points in the area of the village of Kirants in the Tavush region of  Armenia, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in an interview with Armenia's Public TV. 

"In the coming days we will begin delimiting that part that is not  disputed, including by the residents of Kirants, and we will look for  solutions to the remaining 3-4 points," Pashinyan said.

As the prime minister indicated, he does not want to disclose "a lot  of working information, including title documents, including other  documents, some of which are classified as confidential and top  secret, even of special importance." However, he assured that the  authorities are doing everything to protect the interests of local  residents, listen to them, and try to do what they say.

Responding to the remark that the school in the village of Kirants,  where the border delimitation process with Azerbaijan is taking  place, will be located close to the border and will be visible, which  means unsafe, Pashinyan noted that although representatives of the  village argued the opposite, it is still vulnerable. "After that  meeting, I specially invited our military and asked whether the  village of Kirants and the school in Kirants are vulnerable today,  whether they are under direct fire, and they answered me - yes. This  is the difference - today the school is under direct attack, and  there are no obstacles between the school and the nearest Azerbaijani  post, but after the delimitation process there will be an obstacle in  the form of a delimited border. This is exactly what I am trying to  convey to our dear villagers and townspeople," Pashinyan said.

In response to the presenter's remark that if earlier Azerbaijanis  were visually far away, but now schoolchildren will see them, the  prime minister noted that there are still many questions that do not  have answers until work is done on the ground.

"The experience of Voskepar and Berkaber showed that when you go to a  place with coordinates, it turns out that your ideas about this area  are slightly different from what is on the ground, because no matter  how accurate maps and satellite photographs are, it is realistic to  see on the ground "that's different," he said.  According to him,  during this time there was no case when points on satellite images  coincided with physical points on the ground. "Moreover, there are  both opportunities and risks. I want to repeat: maybe a little in  this direction, a little in that direction. If we are talking about  visual visibility, I say we can plant a tree, we can build a wall,"  he noted.

As for the problem with the feeling of security, according to  Pashinyan, "the feeling of security is the border, the state  delimited border, the feeling of security is peace, the feeling of  security is the absence of escalation, regional stability."

Touching upon the availability of property certificates for village  residents, the Prime Minister said that this issue is quite serious  and is discussed daily. "No matter how much we put coordinates on a  satellite image with a magnifying glass, during the delimitation  process the device gives a deviation: 5 meters, 10 meters, 30 meters.  We don't know what the situation is on the ground, we need to work on  the ground to understand: We need to go and look at the site and I  have told people about the problems that may arise," he said.

On April 19, the Armenian Foreign Ministry, following the results of  the eighth meeting of state commissions, announced that Armenia and  Azerbaijan agreed to begin delimitation from the Tavush region and by  July 1 to complete the approval of the draft regulations on the joint  activities of delimitation commissions. Since the evening of the same  day, residents of the border villages of Tavush, dissatisfied with  the agreements between Yerevan and Baku, have been holding protests.

Today, from early morning, a tense situation has developed in the  village of Kirants - there are reports from the place of a large  number of police officers gathering. According to the statement of  the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Armenia, the Ministry of Defense  of the Republic of Armenia has begun demining work on the  Armenian-Azerbaijani border - in the area of the village of Kirants  in the Tavush region and the village of Heyremli in the Kazakh region  of Azerbaijan. The Ministry of Internal Affairs has already reported  that 31 people in Kirantsa have been brought in for failure to comply  with the legal demands of a government representative. Police forces  blocked the entrances to the village; the Tavush for the Motherland  movement reports that there are minors among those detained.
