Yerevan doesn't provide location of mass graves of Azerbaijanis

Yerevan doesn’t provide information on the location of mass graves [of Azerbaijanis], because it knows that these facts of massacres can be characterized as war crimes, Head of Sector at Azerbaijan's Presidential Administration Gabib Mikayilli said.

Mikayilli made the remark at a conference on "Identification of missing persons - humanitarian approach" dedicated to the International Day of the Missing Persons and organized by Azerbaijan’s State Commission for the Affairs of Hostages and Missing Persons together with the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC).

"The mine problem is also an obstacle in the investigation of these issues. Azerbaijan together with the International Committee of Red Cross will take joint steps in this area starting next month. In addition, it's necessary to apply forensic medical expertise in this matter. The joint ICRC mechanism with Azerbaijan and Armenia in connection with missing persons can be effective in this issue," Mikayilli added.

Senior investigator for important cases of the special investigation department of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan Emil Aghayev said that during construction and restoration work carried out on the liberated territories of Azerbaijan, the remains of at least 29 people were discovered in 18 locations.

Director of the Association of Forensic Medical Examination and Pathological Anatomy of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Health Adalat Hasanov said that one box with human remains was delivered from Shikhbabaly village of Aghdam, two boxes from Zallar village Kalbajar and one from Chirag village of Kalbajar last week. He noted that a forensic examination of remains will be carried out this week.
