“We are deeply concerned over the US side’s inability to inform the international community of the White House plans for closure of the prison at Guantanamo, for the investigation of CIA operatives’ involvement in kidnappings in the European Union countries and keeping of prisoners in secret prisons,” the ministry said. “We are concerned over the American practice of extradition of detainees to the countries that are “unreliable” from the point of view of torture.
