  • Georgia opened investigation due to improper border demarcation with Azerbaijan

Tbilisi: Prosecutor’s office of Georgia opened criminal investigation into "improper’’ border demarcation and delimitation between Georgia and Azerbaijan. It was stated by prosecutor’s office of Georgia Tuesday.

It’s noted that case is opened under article of ,,transfer of part of Georgian territory to foreign country’’. 

Besides that, reason of instituting the investigation was the letter of defense ministry of Georgia dated to August 17, 2020. There is written that ,,governmental commission confirmed certain portions of Georgia-Azerbaijan border in an improper way, to the detriment of Georgian interests’’.

Previously, foreign minister of Georgia David Zalkaliani announced that documents signed with Azerbaijan in 2006-07 would be revised due to recently found cartographic materials.

Delimitation and demarcation process of Georgia-Azerbaijan boundary began in 1996. Until 2007 about 70 % of job of clarifying of border was undertaken. Later, negotiations had stalled due to David-Gareji complex and village of Erisimedi.
