Armenian Side Proposes to Exchange Elnur Huseynzadeh for Armenian Captive

Baku / 05.12.18 / Turan: The representative of the "MFA" of Karabakh Artak Nersisyan told the Armenian media that the Armenian side does not consider it possible to exchange Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev for Armenian prisoners held in Azerbaijan.

According to him, Guliyev and Asgarov "committed serious crimes and cannot be considered prisoners of war". At the same time, "as a humanitarian gesture," the Karabakh side is ready to consider the possibility of early release of the Azerbaijani citizen Elnur Huseynzadeh, who "did not commit serious crimes in Karabakh", Nersisyan said.

He made it clear that the Armenian side is waiting for a response from Baku in the form of the liberation of Armenians and, above all, those with health problems.

Recall that in Azerbaijan there are three captured Armenians and as many Azerbaijanis on the Armenian side. Some time ago, Baku offered to exchange everyone for everyone, but the Armenian side refused to do so.

Recall that Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev were detained and convicted in Karabakh in 2014. Elnur Huseynzadeh was captured in February 2017.

Azerbaijan has Armenian citizens Zaven Karapetyan and Karen Ghazaryan, as well as a Karabakh resident Arsen Baghdasaryan. -02D-

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
