On November 1, Chairman of the Caucasus Muslims Office Sheik-ul-Islam Haji Allahshukur Pashazade met with Armenian serviceman Hakob Injughulyan captured on the contact line in August 2013, APA reports.
The source says that the meeting took place at the request of Catholicos of All Armenian Karekin II. Allahshukur Pashazade was told that Azeris do not offend the captive.
Archbishop of Baku and Azerbaijan Eparchy Alexander Ischein, Chairman of the religious community of the Mountain Jews of Baku Milikh Yevdayev and Head of the Baku Catholic Church Vladimir Fekete were also present at the meeting. To note, under the declaration signed by religious leaders in 2010, the religious leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan undertook obligations to provide mutual assistance in the problems of military prisoners. Journalists were not allowed to attend the meeting, as it was held without the consent of the International Committee of the Red Cross.
