During the meeting, the commissions agreed on the following:

1. In the initial stage of the delimitation process, according to the legally justified inter-republic border, which existed within the framework of the Soviet Union at the time of its fall, the separate parts of the border line of the parties are Baganis (Armenia) – Baganis Ayrim (Azerbaijan), Voskepar (Armenia) – Ashaghi Eskipara (Azerbaijan), They agreed to pass directly between Kirants (Armenia) – Khairimli (Azerbaijan) and Berkaber (Armenia) – Kizilhajili (Azerbaijan) settlements.

2. It was decided that the descriptive coordinates of these parts of the border line should be drawn up taking into account their accuracy based on geodetic measurements on the ground, and this should be agreed upon and signed by the parties by May 15, 2024.

3. It is agreed that the parties will apply to their respective governments to make arrangements for the simultaneous and parallel deployment of their border services on agreed portions of the border line. It was also agreed that until the delimitation process is fully completed, the parts of the border line specified in the Protocol-description shall be considered delimited.

4. In parallel, completion of the work on the agreement of the draft statute on the joint activity of the State Commission on State Border Delimitation between Azerbaijan and Armenia and the Commission on State Border Delimitation and Border Security between Armenia and Azerbaijan by July 1, 2024, and the process of internal agreements and it was agreed to start the approval of the statute in accordance with the requirements of the legislation of the states of the parties.

5. The parties agreed that they will be based on the 1991 Alma-Ata declaration in the delimitation process. The parties also agreed to establish that basic principle in the draft charter (if in the future a different decision is made in the agreement on the establishment of peace and interstate relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia, then the relevant clause of the charter will be adapted to the principles defined by this agreement).

6. After approving the charter, the parties agreed to agree on the rotation and continue the delimitation process on all other parts of the border, including enclave and exclave issues.

As a result of the meeting, a protocol was signed. It was decided to agree on the date and place of the next meeting.

… The most important detail of the results of the meeting is that the 4 non-enclave villages under occupation were returned to Azerbaijan without a single bullet being fired or bloodshed. This is undoubtedly the next great victory based on the political will of Azerbaijan and President Ilham Aliyev personally.

One of the important nuances of today was the fact that the accusation against Azerbaijan, which was among the main points on the agenda for months, was nullified. France and the Iravan establishment, which followed its instructions, accused Azerbaijan of “preparing for war” and preparing plans to liberate our villages that are still under Armenian occupation by military means.

However, before starting the demarcation and delimitation process of the conditional state border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, reaching an agreement on the return, or rather, the liberation of 4 villages of the Gazakh region through peaceful negotiations, through an agreement, what is the meaning of the phrase “aggressive Azerbaijan” repeated by French President Emmanuel Macron as a mantra. proved to be so wrong, baseless and hysterical.

Rather, this verbal geopolitical construction and charge modulation of France has collapsed.

At the same time, within the framework of the agreements reached in the secret discussions held between US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, European Commission Chairman Ursula von der Leyen and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in Brussels on April 5, Washington and Brussels were not allowed to interfere in the processes.

As it can be seen, Baku’s strategy has fully justified itself, and the direct negotiations between Azerbaijan and Armenia, carried out without intermediaries, are already yielding initial results.

Baku clearly demonstrated that the desire of the states and forces trying to realize their neo-colonial and neo-imperialist interests by interfering in the processes in the South Caucasus through Armenia is not to contribute to the establishment of peace and stability in the region, but to create obstacles and challenges with new risks.

The liberation of our four villages, which have been under Armenian occupation for 30 years, and their return to the Motherland is another victory, the next victory of the head of state of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev.

The victory is not a spontaneous event, but a clear example of the policy, diplomatic course and activities of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief after the Second Karabakh War in 2020.
