BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 26
After the end of hostilities, more than 100 detained Armenian servicemen were handed over to the Armenian side, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said making a press statement jointly with President of Russia Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, Trend reports.
“Azerbaijan has always consistently advocated the observance of all humanitarian norms, whether during the hostilities and after. I must say that after the end of hostilities, more than 100 detained Armenian servicemen were handed over to the Armenian side, including one that was handed over this morning – a wounded soldier who received medical assistance from Azerbaijani doctors, as well as one civilian who, having lost his way, got lost in our territory. In other words, we have always proceeded from the principle of humanism and intend to continue to work in this direction. Also, from the Armenian side, we are also seeing a disposition to create preconditions for the situation in the region to be more predictable. I have repeatedly said that we in Azerbaijan are determined to turn the page of a long-term confrontation with Armenia, to begin a stage of normal interaction, and I think that it is in this format that we are achieving our goals,” the head of state said.
