Yerevan Sends Baku 8 Inaccurate Minefield Forms

Azerbaijan has received eight new minefield maps from Armenia, according to the Azerbaijan Mine Action Service (ANAMA). These maps contain information about minefields surrounding the Murovdagh mountain range in the Kelbajar (Karvachar) region. The forms detail the types of mines, their number, and distances between them. However, ANAMA stated that the latest data provided is not accurate and reliable as analysis of the forms showed that the indicated data does not match with real minefields and the coordinates of the points are incorrect.

In January, Armenia announced that it would be handing over to Azerbaijan eight newly discovered logs of maps of minefields. However, Azerbaijan reacted harshly to this statement, stressing that it expects 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.
