Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

Artush Margaryan, father of the Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan, who was murdered in Budapest in 2004, has attempted suicide by stabbing himself in the stomach. The police found a kitchen knife on the scene.
Margaryan underwent surgery at the Malatia Medical Center and his life is no longer in danger, Robert Kurginyan, a representative of the Medical Center, told ArmInfo.
To recall, the Hungarian authorities extradited Azeri officer Ramil Safarov, who was sentenced by a Hungarian court to life in jail for killing sleeping Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan with an axe in Budapest in 2004. Both the officers were undergoing an English language course under the NATO PfP program. The same day after Safarov's extradition, Azeri President Ilham Aliyev decreed to pardon the criminal.
