Leonard Petrossian Meets With ICRC Representatives

STEPANAKERT (Noyan Tapan)–"The Karabakh leadership is against the taking of hostages and Prisoners of War," Karabakh Acting President Leonard Petrossian said at a meeting Monday with the International Committee of the Red Cross delegate for Eastern Europe and Central Asia–Dominique Buff–and head of the ICRC mission to Karabakh–Stefan Mueller. Petrossian said that Baku must renounce the practice of sending terrorist groups to Karabakh. He noted that such actions were qualified as military–even though the Azeri president had assured that combat activities would not resume.

Buff thanked Petrossian for Karabakh’s constructive stance in this matter and called for the continuation of efforts on resolution of their humanitarian problems.
