During a meeting of the Czech House of Representatives on Thursday Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg said that the Czech Republic supports Armenia in the Ramil Safarov case.
"We have already informed the Armenian Ambassador about our position and support," Schwarzenberg said, adding that the Czech Republic is deeply concerned about the actions of the Azeri authorities and has told them about it.
He said that the whole world is concerned over Azerbaijan's actions and noted that the latter's image has been seriously damaged.
Schwarzenberg welcomed Armenia's constructive position to continue its peace talks with Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh despite the incident.
The Czech FM said that the Ramil Safarov case will be discussed by EU FMs during their informal meeting in Ninosia.
Ramil Safarov, an Azeri officer sentenced by a Hungarian court to life in jail for brutally killing an Armenian officer in Budapest in 2004, was extradited to Azerbaijan on Aug 31 and pardoned by the Azeri President once back home.
