We’re going to carry out demarcation and delimitation and solve all the issues in regard to demarcation and delimitation. Armen Grigoryan—Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia—said this in an interview with RFE/RL Armenian Service today after he was asked whether it is right that the deployment of Russian border guards concerns not only Gegharkunik Province, but also the region stretching from Sotk to Syunik Province and Sev Lake.
Grigoryan clarified that the Armenian and Azerbaijani servicemen will return to their places of deployment and Russian border guards will be deployed in those territories, after which demarcation and delimitation will be launched. According to him, negotiations over the deployment of Russian border guards in Gegharkunik Province are underway. “I call on everyone to wait for the negotiations to end,” the official added and explained that there might not be a need for deployment of border guards after the issue is solved.
