– The trilateral meeting on 2 June in Moscow between the Deputy Prime Ministers of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia brought to light an important divergence on the work of delimitation of the borders between Azerbaijan and Armenia, since the Armenia intends to rely only on a single map dating from 1975 which is probably the most favourable to it and which Azerbaijan wishes to rely on “based on the analysis and examination of all legally significant documents “. The trilateral meetings between the Armenian, Azerbaijani and US foreign ministers in Washington on 27-28 June revealed another disagreement: Armenia demands the withdrawal of all troops from the border and Azerbaijan only that of Armenia as well as the withdrawal of the armed forces of “Nagorno-Karabakh” from its territory. On 13 and 14 June, Alen Simonian, the speaker of the Armenian National Assembly, like Nikol Pashinian the Armenian leader also reiterated the refusal to develop any extraterritorial corridor in the south of Armenia in a way parallel to the border that it has with Iran despite the fact that the Azerbaijani side has explained on several occasions that this provision taken at the time of the ceasefire had no vocation to encroach on the sovereign territory of its neighbour but to relaunch the economy of the region.
