Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 3 / Trend M. Aliyev /
Official Baku appeal to the internal organs of foreign countries to enhance security at their accredited embassies, considering to the aggressive calls given by Armenian leadeship and their danger to the citizens of Azerbaijan, Foreign Ministry spokesman Elman Abdullayev told reporters on Monday.
"To all embassies of Azerbaijan will make appeal to send a letter in connection with this matter to the Ministry of Internal Affairs" - Abdullayev said.
He also noted that the extradition of Azerbaijani trooper Ramil Safarov to Azerbaijan from Hungary was not violated with any international law. Extradition is a step made between two independent states based on their laws, Abdullayev said.
"Armenia does not justify hopes of statehood, unlucky state and therefore betaked to hysterics, trying to get any dividends from its domestic community. Armenia is the same country that pardoned terrorists, which caused the deaths of women and children," said the press secretary Foreign Ministry.
Abdullayev said that Russia, as a co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group must know about the fact of occupation of the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, and must direct their efforts to resolve this conflict.
Azerbaijani officer Ramil Safarov, who was convicted in Hungary, returned on Friday to Azerbaijan. The same day, under an order of the head of state, he was pardoned.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of
Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France and the U.S. - are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
