"Currently, the crossing point provides transparent and regulated movement of Armenian residents, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the Russian peacekeeping forces in both directions," said colonel-general Zakir Hasanov at the meeting with the delegation led by Hungary’s Defence Minister Christoph Szalay-Bobrovniczki, APA reports.

The Minister informed his Hungarian counterpart about the provocations committed by Armenian side on the Azerbaijani-Armenian conditional border and in the territory of Azerbaijan, where the Russian peacekeeping forces are temporarily stationed.

The Minister emphasized that Azerbaijan has established a border crossing and control point at the end of the Lachin road on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border in order to suppress the transportation of manpower, ammunition, mines, as well as other military equipment for illegal Armenian formations, foreign citizens’ unlawful visits, intensive looting of Azerbaijani natural resources and other unlawful activities.
