BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 7. An Armenian serviceman on his way from Armenia to Khankendi was not allowed to pass through the Lachin border checkpoint, Trend reports.
The Armenian media reports that he was not allowed through the Lachin border checkpoint, since this man in civilian clothes was actually a military man.
Moreover, Armenian residents of Karabakh can freely pass through the checkpoint established by the State Border Service of Azerbaijan at the beginning of the Lachin-Khankendi road at any time of the day.
