There will definitely be border control. We have said many times that any road through the territory of Armenia by the logic of a corridor is ruled out. Secretary of the Security Council, Armen Grigoryan, stated this Thursday at the press briefing after the Cabinet meeting of the government of Armenia.
"When we announce that our positions are closer, it means that we have moved forward only with the logic that there will be border control. Any road by corridor logic is ruled out in Armenia. It will definitely be checked; such matter has never been discussed," he added.
The Security Council chief recalled that in general, the unblocking of regional communications was discussed in Moscow and Brussels, alike.
"If you remember, for a long time Azerbaijan was saying that a corridor [through Armenia] was being discussed. In November, when Russian Deputy Prime Minister [Alexei] Overchuk was in Yerevan, he stated that no matter was being discussed in the corridor logic. The same thing happened after the Brussels talks. [European Council President Charles] Michel’s spokesperson announced publicly that no corridor was ever discussed. This shows that our approach in the negotiations has always been this—and continues to be this," Grigoryan stressed.
