Pashinyan extremely concerned over Azeri arbitrary arrests near Hakari Bridge checkpoint


YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 28, ARMENPRESS. State bodies must take appropriate measures to protect the rights of those arbitrarily arrested by Azerbaijan, PM Nikol Pashinyan has said.

“Azerbaijan is carrying out arbitrary arrests [of persons] outside the Hakari bridge checkpoint. This is an extremely concerning fact. Our state bodies must take appropriate steps in all such cases to protect the rights of arbitrarily arrested persons, including in international platforms,” the PM said.

This issue must be on the agenda of the Armenian government for as long as it’s not properly addressed, Pashinyan said.
