YEREVAN. - A considerable part of maps of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh are drawn wrongly, cartographer Grigor Beglaryan told journalists on Thursday.
He considers that areas of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh are separated which is wrong (the territory of “security zone” outside the borders of Nagorno-Karabakh – ed.).
There are a lot of problems while drawing the map of Nagorno-Karabakh. The expert stressed that there are two Armenian states and there are no “liberated” territories. These are Armenian territories, if one uses “liberated” or “not liberated” definitions one should speak about hundreds of thousands square miles of historical Armenian lands which have not been liberated yet. Speaking about these lands, he mentioned Western Armenia, regions of Turkey, not included in the definition but populated by Armenians, Nakhchivan and territories of Eastern Armenia up to Koura River.
According to Beglaryan, television and even textbooks sometimes present false information.
Drawing a separate map violates the Constitution of Nagorno-Karabakh. Cartographer offers to solve the problem by law. Beglaryan also pointed out toponyms stressing that they are important from the viewpoint of historical evidence of people staying in a particular area.
