Azerbaijani presidential foreign policy adviser Hikmet Hajiyev said that Baku envisaged an amnesty for those Nagorno-Karabakh fighters who gave up their weapons, Reuters reported.
“Even with regard to former militaries and combatants, if they can be classified in such a way, and even for them we are envisaging an amnesty or alluding to an amnesty as well,” Hajiyev said.
Karabakh Armenian rights would be respected as part of their integration into Azerbaijan, he said, adding that they had requested humanitarian support as well as oil and gasoline supplies. Three cargos of humanitarian help would be delivered to the region on Friday, he said.
“Currently we are seeing that some individual army groups and officers that made the public statements that they won’t come to our terms and will continue resistance,” he said. “But we do not see that to be the biggest challenge, and big security challenge. Of course this will cause certain challenges and difficulties but not on a such a big scale.”
