Baku – APA. The Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan issued statement on Azerbaijani army officer Ramil Safarov’s release. The spokesman for the Defense Ministry, Colonel Eldar Sabiroglu told APA the statement says that the return of Azerbaijani officer Ramil Safarov to Azerbaijan as a result of personal initiative and efforts by the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and order of pardon about him was welcomed by the Azerbaijani people: “This issue, as it could be predicted before, caused enemy’s protest and hysterics. There is no need to prove that this issue demonstrated the ineffectiveness of the Armenia’s foreign policy and created relevant problems for Sargsyan’s regime. Even if the Armenian leadership uses different methods and strong statements for their political salvation in order to appease the escalating rage of Armenian population, they won’t have the satisfying results. So, according to the tradition used by Sargsyan, he selected the terrorist way in order to settle this issue and according to the warning news he also addressed relevant organizations and gave his instructions. Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan declared that Azerbaijan possesses enough possibilities and can take defensive measures in order to prevent rascal intentions of Armenian President, who has rather good experience in terrorism sphere, and to protect the life of our officer. The threats are not significant for Azerbaijan and the time of speaking with us in such manner passed long ago. It would be better if Armenia accepts and understands the new political and juridical situation. In other case, they can even now imagine the situation that may be created in the region.

The statement said that it is impossible to take no notice of concern of some external forces on Ramil Safarov’s extradition due to the cooperation between Hungary and Azerbaijan: “It is worthwhile to mention it that why do they care so much about Armenia, which occupied 20% territories of Azerbaijan, devastated our lands, killed thousands of our compatriots and expelled million innocent people from their homeland by means of these forces and supporters? Can they explain its reason or by which international law it can be justified? Yes, grave tragedies and crimes were committed against Azerbaijan with the help of Armenians, but we didn’t witness the proper estimation of the aggressor. Regarding us, they always kept silence and then they spoke about justice, human rights. Isn’t the world aware of these tortures? Armenian Sargsyan and Kocharyan regime should go on trial only for Khojaly genocide – where babies were beheaded, pregnant women and older people were killed. Serzh Sargsyan’s direct role in the Khojaly genocide is undeniable. At one time, being proud of this genocide, he made a statement to the press. He has no right to speak about justice, humanity, conscience and universal values. But double standards are so deeply rooted that they don’t consider it necessary to confess the genocides, which were committed by the criminals like Serzh Sargsyan”.

About the sensation created by Armenia around the Ramil Safarov’s extradition, the Ministry of Defense reports that it has no any significance. Our officer’s extradition to his Motherland must be appreciated as the victory of justice and Azerbaijani diplomacy.
