Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry appreciates the cooperation from the
Hungarian side for the return of Azerbaijani officer Ramil Safarov to
his homeland, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesman Elman Abdullayev
told Trend.

"Azerbaijan has been working in this direction for some time and
we greatly appreciate the cooperation of Hungary in this matter,"
Abdullayev said.

Azerbaijani officer Ramil Safarov was convicted earlier in Hungary
and has now returned to Azerbaijan.

Ramil Safarov was born on August 25, 1977 in the Jabrail region of
Azerbaijan. Safarov, 34, who participated in NATO exercises in 2004
in Hungary, was charged with the murder of Armenian officer Gurgen
Margaryan, who insulted the Azerbaijani flag. By the verdict of the
Budapest court, Safarov was sentenced to life imprisonment without
the right of pardon during 30 years.
