Washington, May 22, AZERTAC
The General Assembly of the State of Connecticut, the USA, has issued another proclamation on the Khojaly Massacre.
In the proclamation, the Connecticut House of Representatives extends its “sincerest condolences and expressions of sympathy” to the people of the town of Khojaly in Azerbaijan.
The proclamation says that in the Khojaly Tragedy, occurring on February 25 and 26, 1992, hundreds of people were killed, and that “international organizations such as Human Rights Watch documented these killings; major U.S. and international news organizations reported about the killings with horror, and numerous governments around the world have condemned the attack”. “This tragic event is a sobering reminder of the terrible carnage that can be inflicted in wartime and the enduring need for greater understanding, communication, and tolerance among people the world over,” says the proclamation.
The proclamation was introduced by House majority leader Joe Aresimowicz, and representatives Kevin Ryan Caroline Simmons.
The Connecticut House of Representatives adopts a proclamation on the Khojaly Massacre for a third consecutive year.
