On June 2 President of the Artsakh Republic Arayik Harutyunyan paid a working visit to Askeran region.
The President first got acquainted with the construction works of the main junction of the Karkar River, which is being built with state funds. According to the responsible people, the program is implemented according to the schedule. The President instructed to increase the capacity of the workforce and to put the system into full operation by the end of the year. As a result, more than 2,000 hectares of land in the lowlands of the subregion will be irrigated, which will significantly change the density of agricultural production in the area.
