The Azerbaijani authorities have addressed the Cypriot government to arrest and extradite dedicated friend of the Armenian people and former deputy of the European Parliament Eleni Theocharous. This is what Chair of the Standing Committee on Science, Education, Culture, Diaspora, Youth and Sport of the National Assembly of Armenia Mkhitar Hayrapetyan posted on his Facebook page.
“It is clear that we are dealing with another already familiar manifestation of Azerbaijan’s hysteria. Since 2015, Baku has been addressing Interpol with the same request, that is, to arrest a Cypriot who visited Artsakh, but it has been rejected. As chair of the Armenia-Cyprus Interparliamentary Committee, I have thoroughly discussed the situation with my Cypriot counterpart Nicos Tornaritis.”
Afterwards, Hayrapetyan held phone talks with Mrs. Theocharous and expressed his solidarity with her.
