  Armenian ombudsperson takes steps against international conventions, says Azerbaijan

The Armenian ombudsperson takes steps contrary to international conventions, the Commissioner for Human Rights Sabina Aliyeva told journalists.

According to Aliyeva, the steps, which were taken by the Armenian side contradict all norms of international law:

"The Armenian ombudsperson had to take care of the Azerbaijani prisoners held there at that time. Two of our Azerbaijani compatriots had been held captive in Armenia for about 6 years. The Armenian ombudsperson never met with them, but we take care of the Armenian detainees in Azerbaijan and are constantly interested in them. This is our state policy,” she said.

"We don’t discriminate against anyone. I have regularly visited detainees in Azerbaijan and monitored their conditions, because Azerbaijan has always adhered to and respects all international norms and principles, its conventions. We are always interested in members of criminal groups detained in Azerbaijan," added the commissioner.
