Armenia’s Mixed Response: Handing Over Minefield Maps to Azerbaijan Meets Controversy


Feb 12, 2024
Yerevan Sends Baku 8 Inaccurate Minefield Forms

In January, Armenia announced that it would be handing over eight newly discovered logs of maps of minefields to Azerbaijan. However, the reaction from Azerbaijan was not positive, as they stressed that they expected Armenia to present concrete maps of all mined areas. Baku also noted that the accuracy of the maps presented by Armenia under international pressure after the tripartite announcement of November 9, 2020 is only 25 percent.

According to the Azerbaijan Mine Action Service (ANAMA), Armenia has handed over eight new forms containing information about minefields in Kelbajar (Karvachar) region. These forms mainly detail information about the Murovdagh mountain range and include details on the types of mines, their number, and distances between them. However, ANAMA stated that the latest data provided is not accurate or reliable because analysis showed that the indicated data does not match with real minefields and incorrect coordinates are given for certain points.
