Spanish lawmakers ask the Spanish government to facilitate the  immediate release of Armenian prisoners of war

Spanish lawmakers ask the Spanish government to facilitate the  immediate release of Armenian prisoners of war

ArmInfo.27 lawmaker of the Spanish Congress, 13 members of the Senate, as well as more than 60 members of parliaments of various autonomous communities and city  councils are asking the Spanish government to intervene in the  immediate release of all Armenian prisoners of war.

As reported by the press service of the Armenian Foreign Ministry,  the text of the statement notes that 6 months after the signing of  the trilateral ceasefire statement of November 9, 2020, the Baku  regime continues to fail to fulfill one of the key provisions of this  document - namely, to release prisoners of war.

"According to the data received, more than 200 prisoners of war are  in Azerbaijani captivity. At a press conference on February 26,  President Ilham Aliyev said that he considered them terrorists, since  they were captured after November 9. But the reality is that then the  servicemen were under siege in Hadrut. This unit was besieged by  jihadist mercenaries and the Azerbaijani-Turkish armed forces, but  was not captured at the time of the signing of the agreement. This  gross violation of the agreement once again testifies that the  President of Azerbaijan does not fulfill his obligations. His  priority is hatred of the Armenians, on whom he promised to "hunt  like dogs," "the statement emphasizes, adding that the aggression of  Azerbaijan and its allies against Artsakh led to the deaths of more  than 3.5 thousand 20-year-old soldiers, while tens of thousands of  people became refugees, forced immigrants.

The statement also draws attention to these facts, which destroy the  hope of the Armenian people for a return to normal life, in their  historical territories 106 years after the Armenian Genocide.

"During this conflict, Azerbaijan committed various war crimes. There  are many videos where we see executions of Armenian prisoners of war,  civilians, and inhuman torture, even torture of corpses.  Considering  all this, one can be horrified at the treatment of those who are  currently under the yoke of this oil dictatorship, "the statement  says, recalling that Azerbaijan is among the most authoritarian  states in the world, where flagrant violations of human rights have  been recorded.  

The statement expresses regret over the fact that the OSCE Minsk  Group was unable to prevent the war or protect its victims. "But it  had to at least enforce the humanitarian clause of the ceasefire  agreement.  Compliance with this clause is a precondition for a  negotiated final peace. The law must prevail over violence in the  region, which cannot be abandoned in the face of barbarism and  totalitarianism.  In connection with the aforementioned  circumstances, we, the undersigned, ask the Spanish government to use  all its power, international influence, to free the Armenian  prisoners of war," the appeal says.
