ArmInfo. Armenia refuses to resolve humanitarian issues, and in particular, the exchange of prisoners on the principle of "all for all." This was stated by Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov, speaking on December 5 at the OSCE Ministerial Council in Bratislava.
According to him, over the past year after a meeting with the Armenian minister in Milan, no progress was made in the settlement of the Karabakh conflict. "Over the past year, the Armenian authorities made provocative statements aimed at disrupting the negotiations. In particular, attempts to change the format of negotiations did not stop trying to make the Karabakh Armenians a third party and denying the factor of the Azerbaijani community of Karabakh. Baku's repeated offers to exchange two Armenian prisoners of war - Karen Ghazayarn and Arayik Ghazaryan, on the Azerbaijanis convicted in Karabakh - Dilgam Askerov and Shahbaz Gyuliyev, were rejected, "the minister quoted by Turan said.
It is noteworthy that in Armenia there are no Azerbaijani prisoners of war or prisoners of war. Two Azerbaijani saboteurs Dilgam Askerov and Shahbaz Gyuliyev are serving sentences in a prison in Nagorno- Karabakh for barbaric acts committed on the territory of the republic, including brutal murder and then mockery of the body of a minor youth.
