European parliamentarians seriously protest against the position of Armenia on the Ramil Safarov’s extradition. The members of the UK House of Lords strongly condemned the position of official Yerevan on this issue.
The Member of UK House of Lords Lord Ken Maginnis, commented on the aggressive position of the Armenian government on the Ramil Safarov’s extradition.
He noted: “The release of Ramil Safarov, who was convicted to 8 years for killing an officer of Armenian Army, caused an offense in Armenia and Armenian Diaspora. However Armenians must accept that Azerbaijanis and Turks became enraged on release of Armenians, who were sentenced due to murder and terrorism. The incidents such as an attack to the department of the Turkish Airline at the airport of Paris led to death of Turkish and European citizens.
He also said that neither the international community nor the Western press condemned these terrorists` release.
Ken Maginnis noted that Armenians continue to threaten Turkish and Azerbaijani diplomats.
Member of UK House of Lords Lord Laird also noted that the release of Ramil Safarov after 8 years caused a strict reaction in Armenia.
“There is a danger that reaction of Armenians will go beyond all limits.”
He also underlined that in response to Safarov’s pardoning, they threaten to start a new war in Nagorno-Karabakh, to suspend their diplomatic relations with Hungary and kill Azerbaijanis living in Europe.
Mr. Liard said that Jabrayil region, where Safarov was born, has been under occupation for 20 years. ”
Member of UK House of Lords Lord Kilclooney also noted that Armenians have released their citizens who committed terrorist acts abroad.
“Instead of calling Armenians to reduce the tension, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, intends to start a new war. We have already seen how the “frozen” conflicts blaze up. The Armenian President who has felt the taste of the war during the occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh should understand that a return to hostility can have horrible consequences for both sides.”/Today.Az/
