Azerbaijan envisages an amnesty for Armenian fighters in Azerbaijan’s Garabagh who give up their arms, though there have been some Karabakh military units that have said they will continue their resistance, the Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan Hikmet Hajiyev told Reuters, Ednews reports.
Hikmet Hajiyev, foreign policy adviser to Azerbaijan's president, told Reuters in a television interview that Baku envisaged an amnesty for those fighters in Azerbaijan’s Garabagh who gave up their weapons.
"Even with regard to former militaries and combatants, if they can be classified in such a way, and even for them we are envisaging an amnesty or alluding to an amnesty as well. Currently, we are seeing that some individual army groups and officers that made public statements that they won't come to our terms and will continue resistance. We also see that some minor groups are going to the forest. But we do not see that to be the biggest challenge and big security challenge. Of course, this will cause certain challenges and difficulties but not on such a big scale,” Hikmat Hajiyev added.
