Yerevan-Armenia: The Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin of the Armenian Church has expressed high concerns about the capture of six servicemen of the Armenian Forces by the Azerbaijani military. Six of them were captured on May 27 in Gegharkunik

A press release published on the portal of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin stated that “Such behaviour of the Azerbaijani authorities is strongly condemnable, which violates the provisions of international law, contradicts the universal perceptions of humanism. The recent events in Gegharkunik and Syunik sections of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border are an encroachment on the sovereignty of the Republic of Armenia and the right of our people to a peaceful and secure life. Such provocative actions indicate the real militant tendencies of Azerbaijan, endangering the variety of efforts to restore peace and stability in the region”.

The Armenian Church urged international human rights group and organisation to help to return the servicemen home.
