Armenia seeks Russian army outposts along border with Azerbaijan

PanARMENIAN.Net – Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on Thursday, July 29 that Armenia was considering the deployment of Russian border forces along the length of its border with Azerbaijan.

“I think it makes sense to consider the question of stationing outposts of Russian border guards along the entire length of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border,” Pashinyan told a government meeting. According to him, the move would allow work to be carried out on the demarcation and delimitation of the border without the risk of military clashes.

He said that the Armenian side was preparing to discuss that proposal with Moscow.

In the wee hours of July 28, the Azerbaijani armed forces attacked the Armenian positions in Gegharkunik province, triggering local battles. Three Armenian troops were killed, five others were wounded in the process, the Defense Ministry said, adding that the Azerbaijani forces have been thwarted back to their positions. The Azerbaijanis fired on Armenian positions on July 29 too, injuring one more soldier.
