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-
