Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
The Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations of France (CCAF) expresses aggravation because of Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev's decision to pardon Ramil Safarov extradited from Hungary, the statement by CCAF published in "Nouvelles d'Armenie" says.
Hungary commissioning extradition of the criminal Ramil Safarov killed with an axe Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan in the threshold of Armenian Genocide hundredth anniversary is continuing to encourage pan Turkish obvious annihilation and impunity policy, the statement says. "Our French based compatriots are scheduled to demonstrate a large-scale rally in front of the Hungary Embassy. French Armenians will once again condemn Hungary's decision, which violates international law, contradicts all Council of Europe values and in fact is a challenge directed to the Armenian nation's right to live
freely. They are also set to demand Ramil Safarov bear full punishment under international control...NATO should not stay indifferent to this scandalous operation, as it was dishonoured by this unfair decision several days before the tour of its secretary general to the South Caucasus.
In these conditions the CCAF calls on all the democracies and first of all France and the European Union to condemn such processes as well as Baku which again supported and protected the worst acts of brutality", - the statement says.
