Jakarta, February 4, AZERTAC

Azerbaijani Ambassador Tamerlan Qarayev has met with Chairman of the Indonesian People's Consultative Assembly Zulkifli Hasan in connection with the 24th anniversary of the Khojaly Genocide.

The meeting participants included incoming Indonesian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Husnan Bey Fananie, member of the Azerbaijani-Indonesian inter-parliamentary friendship group Linda Megawati and representatives of local media.

Ambasador Qarayev drew the audience's attention to the fact that “Armenia's aggression against Azerbaijan still continues”.

"Armenia disregards the UN Security Council resolutions and continues the occupation of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territories. All cultural heritage sites in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan – mosques, historical monuments and cemeteries – were destroyed. This was reflected in the reports of international organizations and observers," he said.

The Ambassador gave detailed information about the atrocities the Armenian armed forces committed against the civilian population, especially women and children.

Chairman of the Indonesian People's Consultative Assembly Zulkifli Hasan said he could find no words to describe atrocities of the Armenians against the civilians, particularly children.

Incoming Indonesian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Husnan Bey Fananie gave additional information about the occupation of Karabakh.

Zulkifli Hasan expressed his willingness to visit Azerbaijan this year, saying he will publicly condemn Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan both when he visits Azerbaijan`s parliament and gives a press conference. He said he will also openly reiterate Indonesia`s “everlasting” support for Azerbaijan.
