“32 years pass since bloody January events. At the same time we marked the 30th anniversary of the independence of Azerbaijan,” said Azerbaijan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Khalaf Khalafov, APA reports.

“It can be said with full confidence that January 20 tragedy was a terrorist, criminal act against the fight of Azerbaijani people for independence, for the territorial integrity of its republic. At that time, people in all regions of the USSR fought for freedom. Heroic Azerbaijani people were at forefront of this fight. At that time taking advantage of opportunity our hated enemy neighbor had started to carry out its insidious policy. In order to implement this policy, he chose fertile conditions to tear down a part of the territory of Azerbaijan and unite it to itself. Armenian dashnaks, Armenian separatists, Armenian terrorism organizations all together first find a way to traitor political leadership of the USSR, made deal with them and united their all efforts to tear apart Nagorno-Karabakh, an integral part of Azerbaijan, from it and to unite it to Armenia,” Kh. Khalafov stressed.
