Red Cross Representatives Meet with Azerbaijani Soldier
Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr K. Zarbaliyeva / Representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross met again on 26 June with Azerbaijani soldier, Samir Mammadov, who was captured by Armenians. The meeting was reported by the soldier's father, Nazim Mammadov on 27 June.
The last time Red Cross representatives met with the captive was on 11 May.
A soldier of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, Samir Mammadov, was drafted into military service on 24 December 2006, by the Military Conscription Commission of Azerbaijani Barda region. His relatives failed to get in touch him, and their letters still remain without reply. Mammadov's parents insisted that Samir faced pressure from the Armenians, who would not let him maintain correspondence with his relatives.
The Armenians took Mammodov prisoner fifteen kilometres from his military unit located at the border of Kazakh-Ijevan.
