Mutual exchange of captives and hostages between Azerbaijan and Armenia began on December 14, the State Commission on Prisoners of War and Missing and Hostage-Taken Citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan told APA.

As a result of negotiations with the participation of international organizations and the Russian Peacekeeping Command, an agreement was reached with the Armenian side on exchange of prisoners and hostages. The reciprocal return of captives and hostages began on December 14.

In the afternoon, Azerbaijani prisoners and hostages, including Shahbaz Guliyev and Dilgam Askerov, who have been held hostage by Armenians since July 2014, were brought to Baku by plane. After the implementation of appropriate quarantine measures, the released persons will be reunited with their families.
