Checkpoint set up on border with Armenia
In order to prevent the illicit transfer of manpower, ammunition, mines, as well as other military equipment from Armenia to illegal Armenian armed groups on the territory of Azerbaijan, as well as as a response to the fact that on April 22, Armenia unilaterally, contrary to the tripartite statement of November 10, 2020 established a border checkpoint on the border with Azerbaijan at the entrance to the Lachin-Khankendi road.
