The protestors later handed over a letter of condemnation to the Hungarian Ambassador to Cyprus Balaz Botos, who said that he would direct their grievances to his government.
Hungary sparked a diplomatic crisis with Armenia after agreeing with Azerbaijan to extradite Ramil Safarov, an Azeri lieutenant who murdered Armenian Lieutenant Gurgen Margaryan in his sleep with an axe, while in Budapest for a NATO training course in 2004.
Safarov was given a hero's welcome in Azerbaijan, where thousands of people took to the streets to greet him in his native city of Sumgait. The government promoted Safarov to the rank of major and paid his salary for eight years.
Armenia subsequently proceeded to sever diplomatic ties with Hungary in protest at the extradition.
Azerbaijan has reportedly agreed to buy 2 to 3 billion euros worth of Hungarian sovereign bonds, leading to speculation regarding the circumstances behind the agreement.
