Armenian FM considers issue of organization of mutual visits of  relatives of war prisoners as a result of Karabakh conflict sensitive

ArmInfo. Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan considers issue of organization of mutual visits of relatives of war prisoners as a result of Karabakh  conflict sensitive.

So, on January 23 in Yerevan at a joint press conference with Dutch  Foreign Minister Stef Blok, answering the corresponding question,  Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan noted that he hopes for  the possibility of finding formats for organizing such steps.

<These are humanitarian steps, a humanitarian initiative, and in  addition, an important detail in the context of trust. In addition,  this is a very sensitive issue, since the people in question, one of  them, is guilty of murder. An equally painful question is our  compatriots who find themselves in such a situation. We will continue  to search for solutions. This is quite complicated. The format of the  organization of visits is a humanitarian step, we will continue to  think and seek solutions. For me, one of the most important issues is  the return of our compatriots to Armenia>, the Foreign Minister  concluded.

To recall, at present, three captured Armenians are kept in Baku.  There are no Azerbaijani prisoners in Armenia, but two Azerbaijani  citizens are in Stepanakert, where they are serving sentences for  especially serious crimes.
