The Armenian leadership will be responsible for any provocation of Armenian terrorists against Azerbaijani citizens or diplomats, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry
spokesman Elman Abdullayev told reporters on Wednesday.
"ASALA is a worldwide known terrorist organization that has killed many people. So, Azerbaijan has instructed its diplomatic missions to appeal to the intelligence services of the host country in the event of any threat to Azerbaijani diplomats," Abdullayev said.
According to Trend news agency, Abdullayev referred to a document reportedly received on Sept 3 by the Azerbaijani Embassy in Hungary from the ASALA Fighters terrorist organization, which allegedly calls as a target Azerbaijani diplomats, Azerbaijani students studying abroad, businessmen, activists of diaspora organizations, and states that they will be killed.
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.
