The US State Department maintains contact with the Azerbaijani leadership, calling for the fulfillment of obligations to Hungary in the matter of extradition and clemency of officer Ramil Safarov.

The statement came from State Department spokeswoman said Victoria Nuland at a briefing in Washington.

"As you know, the State Department issued a statement after the Hungarian side returned him [Safarov] to Azerbaijan", said Nuland.

"Since that time we are in touch with the Azerbaijani leadership, urging it to fulfill the obligations that are reported to have assumed before Hungary prior to extradition".

"We have some concerns about this issue, as we said earlier", she said, responding to a question whether Azerbaijan observes these obligations.
