The National Security Service (NSS) of the Republic of Armenia (RA) has commented on the reports about the extradition of Kurdish militants to Turkey.

"Taking into account the baseless and apparent criticisms being made against the RA National Security Service (...) regarding the extradition of Atilla Cicek and Huseyin Yildirim—of Kurdish nationality—to Turkey, we inform that the fake news being circulated not only does not correspond to reality, but also has no legal basis; with them, an attempt is made to target the [National Security] Service," the NSS noted, in particular, in a statement it released.

The NSS added that the process of handing over persons convicted within the framework of criminal proceedings is outside the scope of the NSS powers.
