At a press conference, Nikol Pashinyan, serving as the Prime Minister of Armenia, expressed the country's desire to fully control border checks at the international airport of Yerevan Zvartnots, previously jointly managed with Russia.

In this connection, Armenian authorities sent an official letter to the Russian border troops, expressing gratitude for years of cooperation, assistance in ensuring security, and contributions to the development of border control since Armenia gained independence.


Pashinyan emphasized that thanks to the development of state institutions and accumulated experience, Armenia is ready to independently ensure border control at Zvartnots Airport.

Previously, at a meeting in Munich, Nikol Pashinyan and Ilham Aliyev agreed on steps to reduce tensions and demarcate borders between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Also, as part of a humanitarian initiative, on the border, Armenia and Azerbaijan conducted a prisoner exchange, returning home 32 Armenian and two Azerbaijani soldiers.
