In order to ensure the security of the Western Armenia-Iran border, to prevent illegal logging and smuggling, a 295 km long wall is being built. Most of the work on the construction of a wall on the 64-kilometer border line on the Van-Iran border has been completed. Despite the low air temperature on the hill, work on the construction of the wall continues. 

Due to the cold weather, there is no activity at the border, cases of detection of icy bodies of migrants have been recorded.
