"The fall of one human life in the event of conflict and violence is a tragedy of humanity. The same thing to what happened in the city of Khojaly, Azerbaijan on February 26, 1992.
Persatuan Wartawan Indonesia (PWI) Pusat is the proponent of peaceful resolution of conflict and violence, through the promotion of dialogue, self-restraint and the protection of human rights, especially for civilians, along with their honors and dignity.
The tragedy in the city of Khojaly on February 26, 1992 provides a worthy lesson that conflict and violence will only create misery. No victor prevails, only loss to all parties.
Civilization is founded by tolerance, peace-loving, and mutual respect. Journalism and media, as the fourth pillar of democracy, have the contribution to publish facts and public understanding in creating the pinnacle of human civilization.
In this occasion, Persatuan Wartawan Indonesia (PWI) Pusat wishes to extend its condolences to all People of Azerbaijan and the bereaved families of the fallen victims in the Khojaly tragedy. May they soul rest in peace."
