Azerbaijan, Russia accord 80% of state border head of state committee
Almost 80% of state border has been accorded between Azerbaijan and Russia, the chairman of the State Committee on land and Cartography, Garib Mammadov, said. He was commenting on the process of talks on delimitation of state border between the two countries.
According to Mammadov. There are only three uncoordinated sections. The first is in the territory of Balakan district in the juncture of three countries Azerbaijan, Russia and Georgia. The section called water junction and a forest section also remain debatable, Mammadov underlined. The issues were discussed after the last meeting of interstate commission on delimitation and demarcation in Derbent.
The head of the State Committee noted that members of the commission privately visited the disputable sections and made definite clarification on the map. The Azerbaijani-Russian talks will continue in Baku late this May or beginning of June 2006.
