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".
