Cooperation with Armenia impossible without Karabakh conflict settlement, said deputy chief of the State Frontier Service of Azerbaijan.

The cooperation with Armenia is out of the question unless the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno Karabakh is settled and the occupied Azerbaijani lands are liberated, deputy chief of the State Frontier Service of Azerbaijan, mayor-general Farhad Tagizade told reporters.

'Therefore, we can speak only of the Azerbaijani-Georgian cooperation within the framework of the Program of support to systems of border regulation, integrated with the South Caucasus countries. We have made such a proposal in EU and the program is being implemented in line with our proposal', he noted.

'Due to the Armenian occupation of 20% of Azerbaijani lands, we are unable to control 132 km of borders with Iran and 733 km with Armenia and this complicates the program implementation. Therefore, we will implement it only on the national level and within the framework of cooperation with Georgia', said deputy chief of the State Border Service speaking at the event on the implementation of the Program of support to systems of border management, integrated in the South Caucasus states.
