Artsakh Appeals to OSCE Over Azeri Disinformation

Source: Aravot


A number of Azerbaijani media resources published a statement by the Permanent Representative of Azerbaijan to the OSCE, which refers to alleged traces of abuse discovered on the bodies of deceased Azerbaijani soldiers that were transferred to the Azerbaijani side during the exchange of April 10, with the mediation of the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Office of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office. In this connection we consider it necessary to state the following:

Before the start of the exchange procedure, all bodies were examined in the presence of representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross. No traces of abuse or ill-treatment were discovered or registered on the bodies of Azerbaijani soldiers.

Through its groundless accusations voiced five days after the exchange, Azerbaijan is cynically trying to mislead the international community and evade responsibility for the war crimes committed by the Azerbaijani army against civilians and soldiers of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic, including numerous cases of mockery and mutilation of bodies of the deceased, previously reported by the Karabakh side.
