Pashinyan on "enclave for enclave" exchange between Armenia and Azerbaijan

During a campaign event in Armenia’s northern town of Berd on June 11, acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan referred to speculation that Armenia and Azerbaijan could return to Soviet-era borders in the future and exchange enclaves. 

“The Artsvashen enclave (is ours) but is under the rule of Azerbaijan. Our logic is that the (formerly Armenian) enclave should be exchanged for (formerly Azerbaijani) enclaves,” Pashinyan stated. 

Pashinyan mentioned that during the negotiation stage in the run-up to the November 9 ceasefire agreement, which ended the 2020 Karabakh war, there was concern over the topic of the enclaves.

According to the acting prime minister, the topic of enclaves has always been on the agenda of Armenia-Azerbaijan talks since 1999, and Azerbaijan has brought up the issue from time to time.

Pashinyan suggested that if Azerbaijani enclaves were to be given, they would have to be exchanged for Artsvashen, the formerly Armenian SSR-controlled enclave.
