During the meeting in Brussels with the president of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, we reaffirmed our decision and agreement on the construction of the Yeraskh-Julfa-Ordubad-Meghri-Horadis railway. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this at the beginning of the government meeting on December 16.

“This agreement was reached as a result of the Armenia-Russia-Azerbaijan trilateral working group discussions-chaired by the deputy prime ministers of the three countries-dealing with the opening of regional communications. This agreement was recorded during the meeting held in Sochi on November 26. And all this was recorded also at the meeting in Brussels that was held and mediated by President Charles Michel of the European Council,” he said.

As per Pashinyan, the railway will operate in accordance with internationally accepted border and customs rules, on the principle of reciprocity, and under the sovereignty and jurisdiction of the countries it will run along. 

According to President Armenak Abrahamyan, after the final destruction of the cemetery in Jugha in 2005, we are facing the final stage of the legitimate Armenian Nakhichevan.
