During the recent session of the Karabakh government, NKR Prime Minister Ara Harutyunyan stated that the repair of Drmbon-Qarvachar-Vardenis highway is planned in perspective. Recently 44-kilometer section of the highway has been washed out by torrents and is currently almost impassable. The highway runs through the Qarvachar region, not far from Dadivank, 9th century church complex.
There are many talks about diversifications of highways in Karabakh. Especially in conditions of blockade with Azerbaijan, cars are the only transportation means. Railway and air communication was cut in 1990 and 1992 respectively. At present NKR has a closed 8-meter border with Iran, mined military borderline with Azerbaijan and an open visa-less border with Armenia.
