European Parliament calls on Baku to release Armenian POWs

The European Parliament has adopted a resolution calling on Azerbaijan to release the Armenian prisoners of war (POWs) without any conditions. Azerbaijan should provide advocates, doctors and human rights defenders with access to Armenian POWs and cooperate with the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in investigating reports about inhuman treatment of them, the European Parliament has stated.

Naira Zograbyan, an Armenian MP from the "Prosperous Armenia" faction, wrote on the Facebook that the European Parliament expressed its regret about the violence demonstrated during the Armenian-Azerbaijani war over Nagorno-Karabakh in the fall of 2020.

The Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) have called on Azerbaijani authorities to provide complete lists of all those detained in connection with the conflict. They also called on all parties to clarify the fate of the missing people and to treat the bodies of those who perished with due dignity.

Also, the MEPs called on both parties not to destroy each other's cultural values.

Besides, they condemned the opening of a trophy park in Baku, as it "promotes hostile sentiments and undermines the trust between the nations."
