Yerevan Sends Baku 8 Inaccurate Minefield Forms

Azerbaijan Calls for Accurate Maps from Armenia Amidst Concerns over Minefield Safety in Nagorno-Karabakh

In November 2020, Azerbaijan and Armenia announced a tripartite agreement to establish a ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Under this agreement, Armenia agreed to hand over maps of all minefields in the area to Azerbaijan. However, according to the Azerbaijan Mine Action Service (ANAMA), the latest data provided by Armenia is not accurate and reliable. ANAMA stated that analysis of the forms showed that the indicated data do not match with real minefields and the coordinates of the points are incorrect.

In January, the National Security Service of Armenia announced that it was going to hand over eight newly discovered logs of maps of minefields to Azerbaijan. 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.

The submitted forms mainly contain information about the minefields surrounding the Murovdagh mountain range of Kelbajar (Karvachar) region. The forms detail the types of mines, the number, and the distances between the mines. However, ANAMA stated that these details are not accurate and reliable as analysis showed that they do not match with real minefields and their coordinates are incorrect. This raises concerns about potential casualties among demining teams working in these areas and civilians living near them.
