PM Pashinyan Disputes Surrender of Four Tavush Villages in Parliament Session

During a recent session in the National Assembly where members of the Armenian government engaged in a question-and-answer session, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan addressed accusations from the opposition regarding the alleged intention of the government to surrender villages in Tavush Province.



Pashinyan clarified that the opposition had been asserting that the Armenian government planned to hand over four villages in the Tavush region. He urged those making such claims to specify the exact villages they were referring to.


The Prime Minister outlined the areas where the government is prepared to commence the delimitation process. He indicated the specific locations on both the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides where border demarcation would occur.


"On the Armenian side, we have Baghanis, while on the Azerbaijani side, it's Baghanis-Ayrum. Similarly, on the Armenian side, we have Voskepar, and on the Azerbaijani side, it's part of the Ashaghi-Askipara settlement. Additionally, we have Kirants on our side, while on the Azerbaijani side, it's the village of Kheremli. Lastly, Berkaber is on our side, with the border section facing the village of Kzyl-Hajili in Azerbaijan," Pashinyan explained.


He emphasized that the starting point for border demarcation should not be within the village itself but the border in front of it. The Prime Minister assured that Armenia is prepared for the delimitation process concerning these villages.


Referring to a map of Armenia, Pashinyan pointed out the locations of the mentioned villages and reiterated that they have always been within Armenia's territory. He emphasized that the residents of Voskepar do not dispute the accuracy of the map he presented; they do not contest its validity.
