Baku and Moscow have held "intense negotiations" to extend the operation term of the Gabala radar station, but the parties have failed to come to any decision on the cost of renting station. As a result, on Monday the Russian Federation informed the Azerbaijani side about suspension of the operation of the radar station, since the "Agreement between the governments of Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation on the status, principles and conditions for use of the Gabala radar station" lost its legal force on December 9.
According to the VZGLIAD, Moscow has confirmed the transfer of the note to the Azerbaijani side. "Indeed, such a note was transferred. The agreement on the status, principles and conditions of use of the radar "Daryal" expired on December 9 this year. Accordingly, from now its operation ceases", said the Russian diplomatic source.
Recall, the Gabala radar station was one of the most important components of missile defense of the Soviet Union. After Azerbaijan gained independence, the station was transferred to the ownership of the republic. Agreement to lease the station by Russia was signed in 2002 and expires on December 24 this year.
