Armenia responds to Red Cross Society
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 15 / Trend M.Aliyev /
Armenia sent a written reply this week to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Yerevan after Azerbaijan asked Armenia to return the body of a dead soldier, the ICRC Baku office told Trend.
The Armenian armed forces opened fire on Azerbaijani soldiers June 19. Four Armenian military men were killed and four were wounded in the crossfire. Azerbaijani soldier Mubariz Ibrahimov was killed. His body remained in neutral territory.
"Only Azerbaijani state officials and Ibrahimov's family have been familiarized with the content of the message," the ICRC said.
Azerbaijani Defense Ministry spokesman, Colonel-Lieutenant Eldar Sabiroglu said the
ministry believes that the ICRC will continue working to return the body.
"The ICRC's initiative has failed as of yet. Armenia says Ibrahimov's body is neither in Armenia nor in Nagorno Karabakh," Sabiroglu said.
