 Pashinyan instructs to propose Baku to exchange his son for Armenian saboteurs

Armenia's acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has issued instructions to the government bodies concerned to address Azerbaijan with a proposal for swapping his son, Ashot, for the Armenian prisoners of war, who have been in Baku's custody since the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh in the autumn of 2020.

"I have instructed our agencies concerned to officially address the Azerbaijani side with a statement my son is ready to go to Baku in the capacity of a hostage to be exchanged for our saboteurs," Pashinyan said at a meeting with his supporters in the Mets Mantash community in the Shirak Region.

Earlier, on Tuesday, Pashinyan said he would agree to exchange his son for Armenian saboteurs. He made this statement after Armenia's third president, Serzh Sargsyan, criticized the head of government for saying saboteurs might wait for another month or two and challenged Pashinyan with a call for exchanging his son for Armenian soldiers.
