PanARMENIAN.Net – Azerbaijan’s Interior Ministry has confirmed the detention of Iranian drivers on the Goris-Kapan road in Armenia’s Syunik province, Sputnik Azerbaijan reports.

Para TV reported earlier that the Azerbaijani police stopped two Iranian drivers near the village of Vorotan, accusing them of transporting goods to Stepanakert, Nagorno-Karabakh’s capital. Iranian citizens then managed to let the Armenian side know that they had been detained, after the call was interrupted immediately afterwards.

Baku now claims that drivers from Iran “illegally entered the territory of Azerbaijan along the Goris-Kapan road.”

“Measures will be taken against the drivers of these vehicles in accordance with the legislation of Azerbaijan,” the Interior Ministry said, according to Sputnik Armenia.

On September 12, the National Security Service of Armenia confirmed that the Azerbaijani police were stopping Iranian trucks on said road, checking their documents and inspecting the cargo. According to reports, Azerbaijanis also demand up to $250 from Iranian drivers.
