The Foreign Ministry of Armenia on Wednesday issued a statement on the 31st anniversary of the anti-Armenian pogroms in Baku.
Azerbaijan continues policy of ethnic cleansing and annihilating Armenians in Artsakh – Armenia Foreign Ministry
STEPANAKERT, JANUARY 13, ARTSAKHPRESS: The full text of the statement is below.
So far, the masterminds and perpetrators of the anti-Armenian massacres in Baku have not been held accountable, and they continue to be glorified as heroes.
Moreover, to date, Azerbaijan continues the very policy of ethnic cleansing and annihilating Armenians in Artsakh. A vivid evidence of that is the wiping out of the entire Armenian population from the territories that fell under the Azerbaijani control, which was carried out through massive war crimes and ethnic cleansing.
Today by paying tribute to the innocent victims of the anti-Armenian massacres in Baku, we once again emphasize the joint commitment of the Republic of Armenia, Artsakh and the Armenians all over the world to ensure the right of all Armenians to free, secure and dignified life in their homeland."
