YEREVAN, AUGUST 14, ARMENPRESS. The Ministry of Defense of the
Republic of Armenia urged the International Committee of the Red
Cross to activate their efforts to visit Hakob Injighulyan, who was
found in the area of protection of Azerbaijani troops having lost his
bearings on the terrain. As reports “Armenpress” the statement issued
by the Information and Public Relations Department of the Ministry
of Defense of the Republic of Armenia in particular runs as follows:

“Citizen of the Republic of Armenia Hakob Injighulyan was found in
the area of protection of Azerbaijani troops having lost his bearings
on the terrain and taken captive.

The Baku Office of the International Committee of the Red Cross
had no opportunity to pay a visit to the citizen of the Republic of
Armenia, who was taken captive by the Azerbaijanis. We are at least
very concerned with the fact that an organization exercising such
mandate and influence has not met the captive soldier till now.

The International Committee of the Red Cross told the Armenian
authorities that the Baku Office continues its efforts aimed at paying
a visit to the captive conscript via the dialogue with Azerbaijan. We
are hopeful that the efforts made by the International Committee of
the Red Cross will be successful and it will be possible to avoid
all the undesirable consequences.

Taking into consideration all the abovementioned the State Commission
on Prisoners of War, Hostages and Missing Persons of the Republic of
Armenia expresses its anxiety about the present situation and urges
the International Committee of the Red Cross to activate its efforts
for visiting Hakob Injighulyan.”
