September 1, 2012 – 16:53 AMT
PanARMENIAN.Net – The release of assassin Ramil Safarov provided the
Armenian side with a strong instrument in Nagorno Karabakh conflict
settlement talks, a political analyst said.
`Safarov’s release damaged Azerbaijan’s international image and
produced a result contrary to what Azerbaijan hoped to get,’ Caucasus
Institute director Alexander Iskandaryan told a news conference in
`Setting free a criminal, who was convicted for an appalling murder,
and declaring him a hero conflicts with all legal norms,’ he said.
`The Azerbaijani leadership justified a murderer and thus took the
responsibility for the crime.’
