No: 57, 26 February 2020, Press Release Regarding The 28th Commemoration Of The Khojaly Massacre

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 26.02.2020

On 26 February 1992, troops of the Republic of Armenia attacked the town of Khojaly in Azerbaijan's Nagorno-Karabakh region, and brutally massacred 613 innocent Azerbaijani citizens including 106 women, 63 children and 70 elderly & hundreds more were wounded. More than a thousand people were also taken hostage. The fate of the missing is still unknown today.

As a result of the occupation of the Azerbaijani territories including this inhuman aggression against civilians, more than a million Azerbaijanis displaced within their motherland, have become internal refugees. Today, the twenty percent of Azerbaijani territories are under Armenian occupation.

We strongly condemn this massacre and the ongoing occupation of the Azerbaijani territories by Armenia.

We stand by our Azerbaijani brothers and sisters over this massacre which they suffered 28 years ago and share their pain. We wish Allah’s mercy upon those who lost their lives in this massacre and extend once again our most sincere condolences to all Azerbaijani people.

Atatürk
