The parties discussed relations between Azerbaijan and the ICRC, as well as issues of mutual interest in the humanitarian mission carried out by this organization.

Touching upon the search for Azerbaijani citizens who went missing during the Karabakh conflict, Naghiyev expressed hope that the ICRC will continue to play an active role and contribute to this process.

Naghiyev said that given the new realities in the region, visits of ICRC representatives to Azerbaijan’s territory where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily stationed can be made through the territory of Azerbaijan, not Armenia.

At the meeting, the sides also discussed the topic of returning home citizens of Azerbaijani origin and their family members from the Middle East region, in particular, from Syria and Iraq.

The vice-president of the ICRC expressed his satisfaction with the useful cooperation with the government of Azerbaijan and confidence that the joint productive work to address the above issues will continue.
