SUBJECT: GOAM STILL LOOKING TO EXCHANGE SOLDIERS

REF: A) YEREVAN 2597 B) IIR YEREVAN DTG 061337ZDEC04

C) STATE 273036 D) BAKU 2082

Classified By: Amb. John M. Evans for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

(C) As reported in the first week of December (refs A and B),
Armenian MOD officials acknowledged holding one Azeri soldier
and reported to us that they had unsuccessfully sought to
return him to the GOAJ. Minister of Defense Serzh Sargsian
told the Ambassador December 1 that his attempts to phone his
counterpart in Baku to discuss the exchange had been
fruitless. The GOAM allegedly also attempted to arrange the
exchange through the Red Cross (ref B).
