Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community

Hungary's Minister of Foreign Affairs Janos Martonyi says that the Armenians should not feel offended at his country's decision to release Ramil Safarov, the murderer of Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan.
In a letter to his Armenian counterpart Eduard Nalbandyan, Martonyi said that Hungary acted according to international regulations and that the transaction that sent Safarov home to Azerbaijan where he was pardoned was "purely of a legal nature".
Martonyi reminded Nalbandyan of the long-standing friendship between Hungary and Armenia and intimated that Christian values connecting the two peoples for a thousand years should not be tarnished simply because his country released an axe-murdering Muslim.
