Genocide perpetrators in Azerbaijan’s Khojaly to answer for this crime

The genocide in Azerbaijan’s Khojaly town shouldn’t be forgotten even for a minute and it is necessary to make the whole world imprint it in its memory, said Mubariz Gurbanli, chairman of the State Committee on Religious Associations of Azerbaijan.

He was giving speech at the event “Khojaly genocide - the eternal memory of the people: justice for Khojaly!” at the Caucasian Muslims Office.

He said that events are being held in Azerbaijan and other countries in connection with the Khojali genocide.

“Serious work has been done in Azerbaijan to bring the realities of Khojaly to the whole world, and this work continues,” he noted. “At the initiative of great leader Heydar Aliyev, the genocide received political and legal assessment. The merit of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation in bringing the truth about the genocide to the whole world is undeniable. As a result of the work done, there are positive developments in terms of recognizing this genocide.”

Gurbanli said that the atrocities committed in Khojaly are a crime against humanity.

“Such criminals should be brought to criminal responsibility no matter where they are,” he noted. “Sargsyan, Kocharyan, who led those who perpetrated the Khojaly genocide, will someday answer for their crime.”
