YEREVAN — Azerbaijan has freed 10 Armenian soldiers captured during deadly border clashes last month.
In return, Armenia handed over maps detailing the location minefields in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, Azerbaijan’s State Security Service said on December 4, adding that Russia mediated the exchange.
Ten Armenians who were captured by Azerbaijan on November 16 have been returned to Armenia Saturday through the mediation of the Russian side.
As reported by Armenpress, the returnees are Narek Yerimyan, Arayik Arakelyan, Serzhik Amirkhanyan, Gevorg Hakobyan, Robert Nalbandyan, Harut Sargsyan, Artyom Manasyan, Erik Avetisyan, Arman Tevosyan, and Tigran Hakobyan.
This was a bad deal.
Azerbaijan should have freed all POWs including those accused of “terrorism,” an absurd charge.
That was part of the agreement and is easy to implement.
Again, Putin tries to humble Pashinyan, and the latter goes along with it.
Let’s hope that the Armenian Government wasn’t so stupid to exchange all minefield maps?!?
