Azerbaijan to UN court: Armenia must stop laying land mines


Associated Press

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Azerbaijan is appealing to the United Nations’ highest court to urgently order Armenia to stop the laying of land mines and booby traps on Azerbaijani territory and disclose the location of those already planted. A hearing Tuesday at the International Court of Justice is the latest legal battle focused on the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh region. Azerbaijan’s deputy foreign minister has told judges that his country has discovered more than 2,700 Armenian land mines since the court ordered both Azerbaijan and Armenia in December 2021 not to take any action that would aggravate their decades-long territorial dispute. Armenia denied laying mines on Azerbaijani territory.
