Azerbaijani parliament adopts statement on centenary of 1918 March Genocide against Azerbaijanis

30.03.2018

Azerbaijani Parliament has adopted a statement on the 100th anniversary of the 1918 March Genocide against Azerbaijanis.

The statement was adopted at a special parliamentary session on Friday, APA reports.

Vice Speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament Bahar Muradova read out the statement at the session.

The statement lists the facts of genocide acts and deportations committed by Armenians against Azerbaijanis at different times.

The document states that Dashnak groups, subordinated to the Baku Council, massacred the peaceful Azerbaijani population for their ethnicity.

“This is one of the biggest pages of the massacres committed by Armenians for the illusion of “greater Armenia””, the statement reads.

According to the statement, as a continuation of this policy, in 1998 Armenia began to put forward territorial claims against Azerbaijan, which resulted in the occupation of Azerbaijani lands, mass killings and ethnic cleansing of the Azerbaijani people.

The document recalls that the resolutions adopted by the UN and other international organizations on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remain unfulfilled and calls for the restoration of justice.
