“Today we are commemorating the anniversary of the Khojaly genocide which is one of the gravest crimes conducted against civilians during Armenia’s aggression against Azerbaijan,” said Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov at the conference jointly organized by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ADA University in connection with the 29th anniversary of the Khojaly genocide, APA reports.
Minister of Foreign Affairs said that although many years passed since the ethnic criminal, wounds have not recovered completely: “Besides committing a genocide act brutally, causing a mass death of people, it also plays an important role here that committers of this massacre have not responded in front of justice. They killed people just because they are Azerbaijani. This massacre has been severely condemned, assessed as a military crime by high legislative bodies of 17 countries, as well as 23 States of the US.
Resolution and decisions, severely condemning Khojaly genocide, have also been adopted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Turkic Council.”
J. Bayramov noted that legal, political assessment has not yet been given to Khojaly genocide at the international level.
