Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's visit to Tavush Province on Wednesday continues.

After his meetings with the residents of Voskepar and Kirants villages, the premier met also with the locals of Berkaber village.

But all these meetings were closed, and people were not allowed to take photos or videos.

As reported earlier, Nikol Pashinyan had visited Voskepar village on March 18 as well and met with the local residents. At that time, he had promised to hold the next meeting with them after ten days, but he met with the residents of this border village only today.

PM Nikol Pashinyan’s previous meeting with the Voskepar residents did not go smoothly. The topic of that meeting was handing over the four villages in Tavush to Azerbaijan, to which the people of Voskepar expressed their opposition.

Pashinyan had told the villagers that the aforesaid villages must be handed over to Azerbaijan, otherwise a war will start again.

It is about the Baghanis-Ayrum, Ashaghi Askipara, Kheyrimli, and Ghizilhajili villages.

And in his last press conference, Nikol Pashinyan had stated that these four villages are not part of Armenia.
