STEPNAKERT—Calling Baku’s decision to pardon and glorify axe murderer Ramil Safarov, Nagorno-Karabakh Republic President Bako Sahakian said it reflected the “loathsome moral and political atmosphere reigning in Azerbaijan, which is the continuation of fascist ideology and genocidal policy.”
Sahakian spoke during a special session Karabakh’s National Security Agency on Tuesday.
He told the meeting that “this monstrous deed [is] as a hard blow to the negotiation process and the mediation mission of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries.”
Sahakian said that Azerbaijan’s actions cannot go unanswered.
Meanwhile, President Serzh Sarkisian, in a congratulatory message on the occasion of Karabakh independence, reflected on the recent situation created by Hungary’s decision to extradite Safarov and the subsequent actions by Azerbaijan.
“On behalf of the people of Artsakh and the entire Armenian nation, I would like to pose a question – after what has happened, is there a living soul on this planet who will advise the people of Artsakh to become part of Azerbaijan, a country where illicit orders set free and publicly glorify every bastard which kills people only because they are Armenians?” Sarkisian said in his message.
“A greater disgrace for the European justice can hardly to be imagined, particularly for Armenia and Artsakh, since they looked to it for guidance, but now we have seen another face of it,” added Sarkisian.
