OSCE Chief Welcomes Release of 15 Armenian Captives by Azerbaijan in Exchange for Mine Maps

OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and Sweden's Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ann Linde, has welcomed the release of 15 Armenian captives by Azerbaijan in exchange for mine maps.

"Welcome the additional release of 15 Armenian detainees by Azerbaijan and Armenian release of maps of mines. Appreciative of Russian mediation. Hope more confidence-building can pave way for sustainable settlement under auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs," she said in a tweet on Sunday.

Azerbaijan set free 15 Armenian prisoners late on Saturday in return for maps of the locations of 92,000 anti-tank and anti-personnel mines in the Azeri-held Kovsakan (Zangelan) and Varanda (Fizuli) regions of Artsakh.
