STEPANAKERT — Azerbaijan has handed over on Wednesday a Karabakh Armenian soldier who was taken prisoner in March after crossing the Armenian-Azerbaijani “line of contact” around Nagorno-Karabakh in still unclear circumstances.

According to the Nagorno Karabakh State Commission on Prisoners of War, Hostages and Missing Persons, Andranik A Grigoryan, a private of the Defense Army, was repatriated on Wednesday afternoon through the mediation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The hand-over took place at the Line of Contact near the village of Bash Garvand in Aghdam.

During his captivity, the ICRC regularly visited him to assess the conditions in which he was held, the treatment he received and to facilitate contact with his family.
