CoE Secretary General urges Armenia to return Azeri raider`s body to  Azerbaijan  

ArmInfo.Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland has issued a statement on the  armed incident that took place on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border on 29 Dec 2016. 

"The Council of Europe does not have a direct role in the  negotiations, and always refers to, and supports the role of, the  OSCE Minsk-Group. However, we are concerned about the humanitarian  aspects of the conflict. I am aware that the violations of the  ceasefire on 29 December resulted in casualties, and that the  Armenian Armed Forces are still holding the body of an Azerbaijani  serviceman killed in the fighting. I urge the parties to respect the  ceasefire, and I fully support the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk  Group's call for the return, without delay, of human remains - in  accordance with the agreements of the Astrakhan Summit of 2010 -  bearing in mind the humanitarian nature of this issue," Jagland says  in his statement posted on the website of the Council of Europe.  

To recall, on December 29 morning, the Azeri armed forces attempted a  sabotage attack on the southeastern section of the Azeri-Armenian  border near Chinari village of Tavush province of Armenia. The  adversary used sniper rifles and grenade launchers. The Armenian  troops got to grips with the adversary. Armenian Defense Ministry  Spokesman Artsrun Hovhannisyan said that three Armenian servicemen  were killed - Senior Lieutenant Shavarsh Melikyan and privates Edgar  Narayan and Erik Abovyan. The adversary suffered 7 human losses,  including one victim left on the Armenian side when retreating. Five  more Azeri servicemen were killed in the course of the punitive  measures taken by the Armenian armed forces on December 30.
