Border delimitation process with Azerbaijan will be complex and lengthy, says Deputy Prime Minister
YEREVAN, DECEMBER 6, ARMENPRESS. Border delimitation process between Armenia and Azerbaijan will be complex and lengthy, Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia, Mher Grigoryan said during the question-and-answer session with members of the government in the National Assembly.
“The delimitation process will be quite complex and prolonged; this is obvious. There seems to be a mutual understanding that the delimitation process will be carried out solely on the basis of documents having legal significance. Additionally, we will work with maps that are not pictures or map-like diagrams, but actual topographic maps. For example, the 1975 map, which should be carefully studied. There will not be a single meeting after which we will come and declare that the delimitation process is completed. This is simply impossible,” said the Deputy Prime Minister.
Grigoryan emphasized the importance of the fact that the parties share a common understanding of the process, its significance and the approach to work.
Addressing the outcomes of the latest working meeting between the commissions of Armenia and Azerbaijan on delimitation issues, the Deputy Prime Minister mentioned that they had agreed to establish a working protocol that would outline the institutional process of the work.
The Deputy Prime Minister didn’t provide substantive details from the latest meeting, as it wasn't discussed, including matters related to enclaves and exclaves.
