The
officer had been sentenced to life for killing the Armenian while both
were attending a NATO course in Hungary. After being freed, the officer
was pardoned upon returning home Friday. Hours later, Armenia broke

on Wednesday night to end ties with Hungary’s Parliament, saying in a
statement that Hungarian authorities “are also responsible” for the
pardoning.

International negotiators said the pardoning harms peace efforts there.
