In November 2020, Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a tripartite ceasefire agreement, which included the exchange of maps of mined areas. However, according to the Azerbaijan Mine Action Service (ANAMA), the data provided by Armenia is not accurate and reliable. The forms submitted by Armenia mainly contain information about the minefields surrounding the Murovdagh mountain range of Kelbajar (Karvachar) region. The forms detail the types of mines, the number, and the distances between the mines. However, ANAMA stated that the latest data provided is not accurate and reliable, as analysis of the forms showed that the indicated data do not match with real minefields and the coordinates of the points are incorrect.

In January 2021, Armenia announced that it was going to hand over to Azerbaijan eight newly discovered logs of maps of minefields. This announcement was met with harsh criticism from Azerbaijan, which emphasized that it expects Armenia to present concrete maps of all mined areas. Baku also noted that the accuracy of the maps presented by Armenia under international pressure after the tripartite announcement of November 9, 2020 is only 25 percent. This raises concerns about safety in areas where mines still exist on both sides after more than three decades of conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh.
