Рђrmenian prisoner of war repatriated from Azerbaijan
On 18 January 2006 one Armenian prisoner of war previously detained in Azerbaijan was repatriated under the auspices of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the ICRC Baku office press service told Trend.
The operation took place on the road between the Azerbaijani town of Gazakh and the Armenian town of Ijevan.
ICRC delegates visited the serviceman before the operation to ensure he was returning home of his own free will.
Since the start of its activities in connection with the Nagorny Karabakh conflict in 1992, the ICRC has helped repatriate or transfer 655 people, and the organization will support any similar operation in the future should the need arise.
