Armenia has always shown human treatment to POWs, Artsrun Hovhannisyan, Spokesman for Armenia’s Ministry of Defense, told Tert.am as he commented on the handover of an Azeri POW to Azerbaijan through the mediation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).On November 12, Telman J. Aliyev, a resident of the village of Masamly, Ghazakh region, Azerbaijan, crossed the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.“I do not think that we can resolve any problem if we respond to their uncivilized methods in a similar way. We have always shown human treatment to POWs and will keep on doing so,” Mr Hovhannisyan said.The international agencies dealing with POWs should call things by their proper names.“We are constantly cooperating with the ICRC. We have discussed the matter with their representatives today as well. We presented a list of 90 people we have handed over to Azerbaijan. And now we want information on their fate. Azerbaijan is always giving evasive answers,” Mr Ho vhannisyan said.He noted that POWs can be transported to a third country if they want.
