As reports the Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Yerevan, the arrestees were exchanged Friday through the mediated efforts of representatives of the ICRC near the Kayan settlement in Ijevan.
The process of return of citizen Zaven Karapetyan to his homeland is not application of the “principle of all for all”, said Armenian MFA.“Ibrahimov hadn’t committed a grave crime, and so an individual approach based on the humanitarian principle is applicable for him,” said spokesperson of the Armenian MFA Anna Naghdalyan.
