Baku accused Yerevan of refusing to issue accurate maps of minefields in Karabakh.

Baku accused Yerevan of refusing to issue accurate maps of minefields in Karabakh.

The Armenian side, using various pretexts, refuses to provide Baku with accurate maps of the minefields in Karabakh, the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry reports.

“The mines planted by Armenia remain a serious problem. Yerevan, under various pretexts, refuses to provide accurate maps of the minefields. The number of victims since November 2020 has reached 346. Today, as a result of the explosion, a shepherd was injured and both legs were amputated,” the report says.

Earlier, the National Security Service of Armenia stated that in 2021 it handed over 972 forms of minefield maps to representatives of Azerbaijan without preconditions, but after that Baku “began an information campaign accusing Armenia of providing inaccurate and incomplete forms.” The NSS recalled that Armenia has repeatedly stated that it simply does not have better quality maps at its disposal.


In 2022, Yerevan and Baku, through the mediation of Russia, the United States and the European Union, began discussing a future peace treaty. At the end of May 2023, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated that Yerevan is ready to recognize the sovereignty of Azerbaijan within Soviet borders, that is, together with Karabakh.
