On a visit to Armenia US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland called on the Armenian side to make a humanitarian step and release the two Azerbaijani national convicted and jailed in Artsakh. At the same time Nuland described the acts of the Azeri saboteur a “horrible crime.”
“Official Stepanakert rejects the call of the Assistant Secretary,” David Babayan, Spokesman for the President of Nagorno Karabakh, told Public Radio of Armenia. He added that “they made a humanitarian step by prosecuting the saboteurs in an open and transparent trial.
Babayan said Nuland’s call was at least strange to him. “Can you imagine how the US would react if some organizations asked to release the Boston terrorists?”
The Spokesman said the release of the saboteurs is possible only in one case – “If they agree to exchange one of them for Ramil Safarov.”
