EU calls on Azerbaijan to provide ECHR with necessary information about Armenian POWs

The European Union calls on Azerbaijan to provide the outstanding information about the Armenian prisoners of war to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), which was requested by the Court earlier.

The EU issued a statement which says:

“The European Union welcomes the consolidation of the ceasefire on the ground, following the ceasefire agreement reached by the parties on 9 November 2020, and some positive results achieved on issues such as the repatriation of human remains and the provision of humanitarian assistance to populations severely affected by the conflict.

The European Union reiterates, however, that renewed efforts are necessary to build confidence between both countries and make progress towards sustainable peace. This includes refraining from hostile and offensive rhetoric, finalizing, as soon as possible, the return of all remaining prisoners of war and detained persons, regardless of the circumstances of their arrest, and cooperating also on other important issues such as demining”.
