RSC COMMENTS ON ARMENIAN-GERMAN RELATIONS & ECHR RULING ON SAFAROV CASE

In the first segment of a two-part interview with Meline Petrosyan for 365news.am published on 28 May, RSC Director Richard Giragosian commented on Armenian-German relations and assessed German foreign policy and diplomacy related to the Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) conflict. In the second part of the interview, Giragosian focused on the European Court of Human Rights’ (ECHR) recent ruling that determined that Azerbaijan violated a key European convention by pardoning, rewarding and glorifying an Azerbaijani army officer who brutally murdered an Armenian officer in a barbaric attack with an axe during a NATO course in Hungary in 2004. This ruling found that Azerbaijan’s actions amounted to the “approval” and “endorsement” of the “very serious, ethnically-biased crime” committed by the officer, Ramil Safarov.
