Armenia's Defense Ministry Spokesperson Artsrun Hovhannisyan has commented on the statement by Head of Azerbaijan's State Committee for Refugees and Forced Migrants Ali Hasanov. According to Hasanov, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry suggested Armenian Defense Ministry to exchange the Armenian family of 5 members and the body of Karen Petrosyan, civilian murdered in Azeri captivity, with Azeri diversionists Shakhbaz Guliyev and Dilgam Askerov as well as the body of the killed diversionist Hasan Hasanov.  Meanwhile, Artsrun Hovhannissyan posted on his official page on Facebook social media that Armenia 'is not engaged in bargaining' and is strictly committed to humanitarian principles, making and accepting no preconditions.  


"Respecting the efforts of the ICRC, we regularly apply to the ICRC for organization of repatriation of Armenian and NKR citizens. The Azerbaijani official's statement is a raw misreport," Hovhannisyan writes in the Facebook post
