Swedish MPs send a letter to the Hungarian Embassy in Stockholm

YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 22, ARMENPRESS: An official letter signed by MPs of different political parties in the Swedish Parliament, the Riksdag, has been sent to the Hungarian Ambassador in Sweden, Mr. Gabor Szentivanyi. As Armenpress reports citing Union of Armenian Associations in Sweden , the letter reads as follows:  H.E Ambassador Gabor Szentivanyi Embassy of Hungary in Sweden Honourable Ambassador, It has come to our knowledge that the President of Azerbaijan has pardoned Ramil Safarov following his extradition from Hungary. We will join the international condemnation of the glorification of the terrible crime which Mr Safarov has committed and we are deeply concerned by the consequences that the action will have on the relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The conduct of Baku has been condemned by several international instances, among others UN Secretary General, EU President, the President of the European Parliament, the Chairman of the Council of Europe as well as the governments of the permanent chairmen of the OSCE Minsk Group, denouncing it as incompatible with the ongoing peace process. Mr. Ambassador, we as Member of the Parliament of Sweden wish to find out how Your Government, a member of the European Union, will now react to this breach of rules and agreements and demand Baku to honour international laws according to which the extradition was performed. News media and Hungarian opposition claim that Azeri financial assurances to the Hungarian Government played a crucial role in the extradition which has now harmed the peace process conducted by OSCE Minsk Group. We hope that the Hungarian Government can clarify this issue in a proper manner. At the same time we hope that Your Government will takes decisive measures for reprimanding Baku for their breach of international laws, endangering the fragile peace process of Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as for having dishonored the agreement made between the Justice Departments of respective country. We look forward to Your response and views on the subject.
