Secretary of Armenia's Security Council Armen Grigoryan spoke to CSTO chief Stanislav Zas over the phone to discuss the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, the press service of the Armenian Security Council reported on Friday, February 11.
"During the conversation, the sides discussed the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. Grigoryan stressed that there has been a border between Armenia and Azerbaijan since the Soviet Union," the Council said.
"He also noted that under the 1991 agreement on "the Establishment of the Commonwealth of Independent States," the parties recognized the border, ratified the deal in their parliaments and made it an integral part of the legislation of the two countries."
Grigoryan's comments came after Zas said there is no border between Armenia and Azerbaijan as such, but a line of contact, strongholds, observation posts.
