According to a report by news.am the minister said the direct communication link, which was recently agreed upon with Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev in Tajikistan's capital city of Dushanbe, was operating. "It operates in the direction of Nakhichevan too," Tonoyan added. "An operative link is established; the work is ongoing."
