"Many international organizations have expressed their attitude to this bloody event at the initiative of Azerbaijan, and work will continue in this direction," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev at the press conference held in a video format for local and foreign journalists, APA reports.
The head of state said that at the time of the genocide, Azerbaijan was almost under an information blockade: "At that time, there were no modern opportunities. Therefore, for many, this issue was not so clear. Especially if we take into account that in those years Azerbaijan did not have such great opportunities in the international arena. In return, the Armenian lobby was active and spread false and distorted information about the war and its events. There were some misconceptions in the international community. Of course, we had to make great efforts to eliminate these ideas and refute them. We have been consistently carrying out this activity in recent years. As a state, as I mentioned, as public organizations. Of course, I would like to note the activity of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation among public organizations. Various events were held in many countries under the slogan "Justice for Khojaly". Today, there is enough information about the Khojaly tragedy in the world. Our main goal is that this bloody crime will never be forgotten. This should never be repeated in Azerbaijan or in the world. May Azerbaijan never fall into the helplessness of the early 1990s. May Azerbaijan always be able to protect itself and its citizens."
