According to Armenian News-NEWS.am, residents of the already borderline villages of Gegharkunik Province of Armenia recently succeeded in maintaining certain hills and grazing fields rich in aquatic resources located in the borderline territory after holding negotiations with Russian peacekeepers and Azerbaijani soldiers. This concerns the borderline land parcels linked to Vayots Dzor Province and bordering Azerbaijan that have become disputed land parcels. Moscow-based criminal authorities helped the residents solve the issue, and the fate of the hills and fields of the village bordering Azerbaijan was determined in the presence of Russian peacekeepers. According to Armenian News-NEWS.am’s information, the territories bordering Jermuk are also being mapped.
Armenian News-NEWS.am asked head of Jermuk community Vardan Hovhannisyan if there are disputed lands that the Azerbaijanis want to possess. In response, the head of Jermuk stated that there is no such problem.
“The Azerbaijanis haven’t reached Jermuk yet. Armenian soldiers are dealing with the measurements. The lines are far from the settlements and are closer to the territory of Vardenis.
