Hasanov said he discussed with the ICRC president in Geneva the issue of Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev’s release from hostage.
 
"I have recently attended an international event in Geneva, where I met with the ICRC president solely for the issue of our hostages. I discussed the issue with him and he promised to step up efforts for it. The Armenians are not going to free them easily as Dilgam and Shahbaz as well as deceased Hasan inflicted such a blow on the Armenians, a blow that has not cured yet. That’s why the Armenians insist on not returning them. We offer them in exchange all the Armenian hostages that we have, but they refuse to exchange. All international organizations have issued a statement calling Armenian actions illegal,” he noted.
 
Hasanov said during his meeting with the ICRC president he asked to organize at least an online communication between Dilgam and Shahbaz and their family members on Skype. "Necessary work is underway to organize communication between the hostages and their family members,” he said.
 
Hasanov also added that under the instructions of President Ilham Aliyev, the families of Dilgam and Shahbaz have already been provided with houses and the family of Hasan Hasanov, who was killed by Armenians, will soon be given house.  
 
In July of 2014, Russian citizen Dilgam Asgarov and Azerbaijani citizen Shahbaz Guliyev were taken hostage and another Azerbaijani citizen Hasan Hasanov was shot to death by the Armenian servicemen while trying to visit their homeland in Kalbajar. Hasan Hasanov’s body was taken from the enemy and buried in Baku.
 
On December 19, 2014, the "court” of the separatist regime created in occupied Nagorno-Karabakh sentenced Dilgam Asgarov to life in prison, Shahbaz Guliyev to 22 years in prison.
