Baku, December 1, AZERTAC
“France, which is groundlessly accusing Azerbaijan of war crimes against Armenia, has itself a history of war crimes and crimes against humanity. The atrocities committed by France, which occupied the territory of more than 50 states in different regions of the world, looted their national wealth and kept their people in slavery for many years, the crimes against humanity and war crimes France has perpetrated, represent dark pages of human history,” says a statement by the Milli Majlis of Azerbaijan of 1 December 2022 regarding the resolution adopted by the French National Assembly.
“During the colonial years, the French armed forces massacred hundreds of thousands of civilians on the basis of their ethnic and religious affiliation and was openly engaged in slave trade. France’s crimes of genocide are an indelible stain on its political history,” the Milli Majlis’ statement notes.
“The fact that the resolution turns a blind eye to Armenia's 30-year policy of aggression and ethnic cleansing against Azerbaijan, the Khojaly genocide, the firing of ballistic missiles on the cities of Azerbaijan during the 44-day war, the destruction of nine Azerbaijani cities and over 300 villages during the occupation, the policy of mine terrorism, the facts that almost 4,000 Azerbaijani citizens went missing and Armenia does not provide information on the location of mass graves are clear evidence that the resolution is nothing more than a cheap political order,” the statement adds.
