The statement issued by the agency noted that those who surrendered were soldiers arrested during the attempted provocation on the border between the two countries heading towards Kelbajar on November 16.

The statement said that as a result of negotiations conducted through Russia, Armenia also provided mine maps of territories currently occupied by Azerbaijan.

Armenia had previously handed over to Azerbaijan the maps with 92 thousand mines placed in Fuzuli and Zangilan provinces and 97 thousand mines in Agdam in exchange for 30 Armenian nationals detained in Azerbaijan.
