Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
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”
The president of the Hungarian Catholic Bishops' Conference, Card. Peter Erdo, issued a statement expressing "full solidarity with the Armenian Christians and with the Armenian people that has so much suffered in the past."
"We ask the Almighty that through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary He might lead and protect the whole Armenian people and bless them with the gift of justice and peace," read the statement.
According to Hungarian mass media, Hungarian activists are planning to hold demonstrations this week under the slogan "Sorry, Armenia!"
"This mistake has to be rectified by us, Hungarians!" wrote one. "Today, I am ashamed of being a Hungarian," wrote another. "I apologize to all Armenians, and particularly to the family of Gurgen Margaryan," said a third.
Politicians, religious leaders, and activists in Hungary issued statements apologizing to Armenians and criticizing the extradition.
They echoed the sentiments of tens of thousands of Hungarians outraged by their government's decision to extradite Margaryan's murderer, Ramil Safarov, to his home country Azerbaijan, where he received a hero's welcome, was pardoned, and promoted.
