Azerbaijanis begin campaign in Canada for recognition of "Khojaly Massacre".
TORONTO, February 13, 2012 (A.A) - Azerbaijani nationals living in
Canada have begun a campaign in Canada for the recognition of the
"Khojaly Massacre". Members of the Federation of Azerbaijani
Associations in Canada gathered together at the Turkish Culture Center
in Toronto on Monday and thanked the governments of Mexico, Pakistan and
Indonesia for recognizing the "Khojaly Massacre". Speaking at
a press conference at the Turkish Culture Center, the President of the
Federation of Azerbaijani Associations in Canada, Akbar Majidov, said
that they needed to talk about the "Khojaly Massacre" in more
countries. Genocides are crimes committed against the values of
humanity. The "Khojaly Genocide" was the greatest crime
against humanity at the end of the 20th century, Majidov stressed.
Azerbaijanis regard the killing of 670 Azerbaijani civilians by Armenian
troops in 1992 as a "genocide".
