Yerevan Sends Baku 8 Inaccurate Minefield Forms

According to the Azerbaijan Mine Action Service (ANAMA), Armenia has handed over 8 new forms of minefields to Azerbaijan. However, ANAMA stated that the latest data provided is not accurate and reliable, as analysis of the forms showed that the indicated data do not match with real minefields and the coordinates of the points are incorrect. This news comes after Azerbaijan’s harsh reaction to a January announcement by the National Security Service of Armenia that it was going to hand over eight newly discovered logs of maps of minefields.

Baku had stressed that it expects Armenia to present concrete maps of all mined areas, and 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. The Murovdagh mountain range in Kelbajar (Karvachar) region was specifically mentioned as having mines, with detailed information about their types, number, and distances between them included in the submitted forms. However, this information appears to be inaccurate and unreliable according to ANAMA’s analysis.
