The answer of the press secretary of the MFA of Armenia to the question of "Armenpress" news agency

20 January, 2022

Question: Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Jeyhun Bayramov, responding to the proposals of the Republic of Armenia regarding the delimitation and demarcation processes, stated that Yerevan’s preconditions for starting the delimitation are unacceptable for Baku. How would you comment on this statement?

Answer: I think there is some misunderstanding on the issue. The Armenian side has no preconditions for delimitation. We are speaking about the arrangements. The trilateral statement adopted by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, the President of the Russian Federation and the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Sochi on November 26 reads that the sides agreed to "undertake steps towards increasing security and stability on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border and to take the matter to the establishment of a bilateral delimitation and demarcation commission." This arrangement was reiterated and an agreement on the withdrawal of troops was reached on December 14 during a trilateral meeting of the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan in Brussels, mediated by the President of the European Council. Accordingly the proposals of the Armenian side are not about preconditions, but the implementation of the agreements reached. The Republic of Armenia believes that the delimitation process should launch soon, in accordance with the above-mentioned agreements.
