Armenian defense minister, Head of the State Commission on Prisoners of War, Hostages and Missing Persons David Tonoyan said recently that talks with the Azerbaijani side on exchanging captives and hostages continue: “We are currently making clarifications on who will be exchanged.”

They are Dilgam Asgarov, Shahbaz Guliyev and Elvin Ibrahimov. And there are also three Armenian diversants – Arsen Bagdasaryan, Zaven Karapetyan and Karen Kazaryan, kept in the Azerbaijani side. Exchanging the captives and hostages on the principle of “All to all”, proposed by official Baku is a subject of discussion.”
