Hungary ratifies new Armenia-EU agreement

In 2012, Hungary extradited Azerbaijani military officer Ramil Safarov, who had killed Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan in his sleep - to Azerbaijan, where the murderer was pardoned by President Ilham Aliyev.

Armenia severed ties with Hungary immediately. The two countries have had no diplomatic relations ever since.
