Azerbaijani MP Kamal Jafarov on Monday called on members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to put pressure on Armenia to hand over mine maps to Azerbaijan.
Speaking at the PACE summer session, the lawmaker noted that about 144 people have lost their lives in landmine explosions in the liberated Azerbaijani lands so far.
Jafarov reminded that two Azerbaijani journalists and a civil servant died in landmine explosions several weeks ago.
The MP also recalled that Azerbaijan has recently released 15 Armenian saboteurs in exchange for maps of 97,000 mines planted in Aghdam.
“Armenia’s refusal to provide mine maps to Azerbaijan is a war crime and constitutes a violation of international humanitarian law and the trilateral statement signed in 2020,” Jafarov added.
