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”
Azerbaijan has the capacity for advance measures to protect the life of its officer, Azerbaijani Defense Minister Eldar Sabiroglu said on Tuesday
SalamNews quotes Sabiroglu as claiming that the Armenian authorities are preparing a terrorist act against Ramil Safarov.
"Speaking of stir raised by Armenia, it no longer has any importance. Homecoming of our officer should be regarded as a triumph of justice and the Azerbaijani diplomacy," Sabiroglu said.
Meanwhile, some experts are sure that Safarov's mission is over and the Azeri authorities will shortly get rid of him with a view to blame the Armenians for his death.
Ramil Safarov, who brutally murdered Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan in Budapest in 2004 and was sentenced by a Hungarian court to life in jail, was extradited to Azerbaijan on Aug 31 and pardoned by the Azeri President once back home.
