On July 22, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Karen Mirzoyan received Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Mission in Nagorno-Karabakh, Thomas Hallier.
As press-service of the Ministry reported, during the meeting, the parties discussed a number of issues related to the activities of the ICRC Office in the NKR. In this context, the parties also touched upon the issue of the neutralized Azeri subversive group in the territory of the NKR, and the cooperation established in this regard between the ICRC Office in Nagorno Karabakh and the NKR appropriate structures, in particular, the NKR State Commission on Prisoners of War, Hostages and Missing Persons.
To remind, Azeris made new attempts to mount a sabotage attack on the Armenian-NKR section of the border (near Karvachar) last week. The Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Ministry has told ArmInfo that they revealed and neutralized all members of the Azerbaijani subversive group. Some members of the group were captured, and others escaped. As reported earlier, the Nagorno- Karabakh Defense Army released a photo of Gyulin Shahbaz Jalaloghlu (born in 1968), the captured member of the Azerbaijani sabotage and intelligence team. Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan informed on Saturday that the Armenian soldiers killed an Azerbaijani saboteur while neutralizing the subversive group on Friday. But an Armenian officer, major Sarkis Abrahamyan (born in 1972) was killed and an Armenian woman, Karina Davtyan (born in 1977) was wounded. The NKR Prosecutor General's Office has filed a lawsuit regarding Azerbaijani raiders Gyulin Shahbaz Jalaloghlu (born in 1968) and Dilham Ahmedov (born in 1960) for illegal crossing of the border.
