Armenia's National Assembly has adopted a statement condemning Hungary's decision to extradite Azerbaijani murderer Ramil Safarov with a vote 90 to 1.
In connection with the extradition of Ramil Safarov who axed Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan during a NATO training event in Budapest in 2004 and his pardoning by Azerbaijani President, the RA National Assembly announces;
1. The Hungarian government also bears responsibility for the incident. The National Assembly condemns the behavior of the Hungarian authorities and suspends official relations with Hungary on a parliamentary level.
2 With its step, Azerbaijan is again threatening the regional security and deepening the atmosphere of hatred and enmity towards Armenians, violating human rights enshrined by international documents, attempting to abort the negotiations over the Karabakh peace deal and to frustrate the efforts of the international community [especially those of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs] in the negotiation process.
3. The atmosphere of hatred towards Armenians [deeply rooted on a state level in Azerbaijan] and the recent developments prove that the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic cannot be under Azerbaijani jurisdiction.
4. The National Assembly urges the parliaments of all countries adhering to democratic values to condemn the deal concluded between Azerbaijan and Hungary on August 31, 2012.
5. The National Assembly expects adequate response from international parliamentary organizations and appropriate actions.
The document was adopted with slight changes.
