Azerbaijan plans to hold discussions with Russia and Georgia on the delimitation and demarcation of borders in the first quarter of 2017, , Deputy Foreign Minister Khalaf Khalafov told reporters on Tuesday.

The deputy minister noted that Azerbaijan regularly holds discussions with Russia and Georgia on the delimitation and demarcation of borders.

“The process on border delimitation with Russia is over, whereas the demarcation process is in progress,” Khalafov said. “This is a long process, and there is a need to form a regulatory framework. Then, the sides will focus on providing products for the establishment of a boundary line. Work is underway.”

He said the relevant commissions of Azerbaijan, Russia and Georgia are expected to meet in the first half of 2017.

“The meetings with the Russian side on the level of working groups have already been completed. Preparations are underway to hold meetings of the commissions,” Khalafov added.

According to him, the work with Georgia will take a long time since the delimitation process is in progress.

He noted that two-thirds of the Azerbaijan-Georgia boundary line has already been agreed by the relevant commissions and formalized under protocols.

There is a need to solve uncoordinated issues in order to complete the remaining part, and there should be a regulatory mechanism for each process, Khalafov added.

Recalling the delimitation agreement recently signed between Azerbaijan and Russia, the deputy minister said the process of signing the relevant agreement with Georgia continues.

“This is an important issue and is always under the state control. The commissions continue their activities,” Khalafov concluded.
