Baku, February 22, AZERTAC
The EU-wide Garabakh rally to commemorate the 28th anniversary of the Khojaly massacre has kicked off in Paris Square near Brandenburg Gate, Berlin.
The rally is initiated by Azerbaijani diaspora organizations based in more than 30 countries and with the administrative support of Alliance of Azerbaijanis in Germany.
Azerbaijanis living in Azerbaijan, Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Finland, France, Romania, Croatia, the United Kingdom, Greece, Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Turkey, the US and Canada, as well as diaspora members of the fraternal peoples joined the rally.
The rally participants chanted slogans such as “Garabakh is Azerbaijan!”, “We say No to terror!”, “Azerbaijan demands justice!”, “Don’t be indifferent to Khojaly!”, “Shame on the murders of the civils and innocent people!”, “Armenia stop to lie!”, “Stop invasion!”, etc.
They demanded international community to give proper, legal and political assessment to the Khojaly massacre committed by the Armenian invaders 28 years ago, put pressure on Armenia to return the Azerbaijani lands back, restore the rights of the Azerbaijanis deprived of their motherlands, and make Armenia follow the decisions of the proper international documents adopted with regards to the conflict.
During the rally, the participants distributed brochures about the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Khojaly genocide, financial and moral losses of the Azerbaijani side as a result of the aggressive policy of Armenia among the locals and tourists of Berlin. Thousands of Azerbaijanis attended the rally.
AZERTAC’s special correspondent talked to several rally participants. They said they were going to draw the Berlin residents’ and its guests’ attention to the fact that the occupation of Azerbaijani lands by Armenia continued, and that the criminals who committed the Khojaly genocide remain unpunished. The Armenian leadership’s efforts to break off the peace negotiations and lead the process to a deadlock will also be pointed out by the rally participants.
