YEREVAN, MARCH 4, ARMENPRESS. The optimal solution for the issue of war prisoners is ‘’all for all’’, official representative of the MFA Russia Maria Zakharova said in a weekly briefing.
՛՛The positions of the sides over the issue of POWs are different. We are always talking about that. The difference of those data is significant – the numbers presented by official Yerevan regularly changes, we receive other information from Baku’’, Zakharova said, adding that by now 79 POWs have been exchanged – 63 Armenians and 16 Azerbaijanis.
Maria Zakharova once again confirmed the position of Russia on this issue. ‘’We believe that the optimal exchange format is ‘’all for all”.
