Baku “mortified” over France’s demand to return Armenian captive’s body

PanARMENIAN.Net - Paris is deeply shocked by the death of Armenian citizen Karen Petrosyan killed in Azeri captivity, French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadal said in a statement.

“France offers its condolences to Karen Petrosyan’s family. We urge Azeri authorities to return his body immediately and launch a probe into circumstances of his death,” the statement said.

Baku, as usual, acted mortified by blaming France with a “bad habit of interfering in Azeri affairs” and “overtly pro-Armenian stance, which renders its Co-Chairmanship in the OSCE Minsk Group unsuitable,” Haqqin.az reported.
