Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry has commented on the Armenian Defense Ministry's readiness to exchange Azerbaijani captive Firuz Farajov for Armenian captive Hakob Injighulyan.
Azerbaijani Defense Ministry spokesman Eldar Sabiroghlu told APA that they were informed about the proposal, the news agency reported.
“Firuz Farajov has been held captive for more than a year and based on his interviews with Armenian media, he always wished to go to a third country.
Armenian Defense Ministry’s statement is related to the fact that the Armenian serviceman has been captured by Azerbaijan. I would not like to express a decisive position in this regard. These issues are in the competence of another relevant body,” he said.
