2012-09-04 14:32

Pardon of the Azerbaijani officer Ramil Safarov, sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of the Hungarian Armenian military, will not make Armenia give up the negotiation process on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. According to the IA Regnum, this was announced on September 4 by Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandyan at the joint press conference with his Argentine counterpart Hector Marcos Timerman in Yerevan.


"The fact of the liberation of the killer has already caused negative consequences in the negotiations on the Karabakh conflict, as well as to regional stability and peace; but Armenia is not trying to get out of the negotiation process and spoil it, this is Azerbaijan's style. And deal on Safarov's extradition from Hungary to Azerbaijan was also focused on it", the head of the Armenian Foreign Ministry said.

Recall, Budapest has filde a protest against Baku's decision to pardon Ramil Safarov, who murdered an Armenian officer in 2004.

State Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary Zsolt Nemeth handed a note of protest to the Ambassador of Azerbaijan in Budapest on Sunday.

Hungary accuses Azerbaijan of violating previous agreements under which Safarov was to continue to serve prison term at home, and the possibility of parole could be granted only after 25 years from begining of detention.

Hungarian Foreign Ministry said the decision to pardon Safarov, who was sentenced to life in prison, was unacceptable.
