A group of Members of Spanish Congress of Deputies and Senators demand from Azerbaijan to release the Armenian prisoners of war.

Today, they were photographed together in front of the central entrance of the Congress with posters reading ‘Freedom to Armenian prisoners of war.’

Six months after the end of hostilities in Nagorno Karabakh, over 200 Armenian POWs still remain in Azerbaijani captivity. 

Last week twenty-seven members of the Spanish Congress, 13 members of the Senate, and 60 members of parliament of various autonomous communities, city councils asked the government to intervene to ensure the immediate release of all Armenian prisoners of war.

“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
