YEREVAN.- Lack of direct contacts with Azerbaijan complicates the search of missing persons, said Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan.

The Minister visited capital city Yerevan’s Yerablur Military Pantheon on June 29 when Armenia marks the Day of Missing Freedom Fighters, who are considered missing due to the Nagorno-Karabakh liberation war.

“We can receive data only in cooperation with the international agencies. Due to the lack of direct contacts with Azerbaijan, the process is very slow,” he said.
