On April 23, last year, units of the State Border Service established the Lachin checkpoint across the state border on the sovereign territories of Azerbaijan at the beginning of the Lachin-Khankendi road.

At the newly created checkpoint, a ceremony was held to raise the Azerbaijani flag, which was reported to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Ilham Aliyev.
