Pashinyan defends demarcation at meeting with more border residents

Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan on Sunday, June 16 met with the residents of the border village of Shikahogh in Armenia's southern Syunik province.

Pashinyan maintained it was “necessary” to demarcate the border, and inquired about the problems and needs of the village.

“Border demarcation is necessary. As we do in Voskepar (a village in the northern Tavush province): we install barbed wire at demarcated areas, neither people nor animals can cross it,” Pashinyan said.

Pashinyan also spoke about the need to demarcate the border in the village of Nerkin Hand.
