Ramil Safarov

Bob Blackman, the member of Communities and Local Government Committee made a statement on the issue the statement reads:

"Tensions in the South Caucasus are already high, and recent threats of war by the Armenian government over the Safarov affair are unhelpful.

News of Safarov’s release has been used by those who wish to inflame the situation but we must remember that his extradition was carried out within the bounds of EU legislation.

Renewed conflict must be avoided at all costs, and both sides should sit down and negotiate a peaceful settlement based on the four UN Security Council Resolutions."
