Baku – APA. Pakistani influential “Diplomatic Star” magazine has published article entitled “The bloody memories of 31st March 1918” on March 29, Azerbaijani Embassy in Pakistan told APA. The article says that the Day of 31st of March, 1918 is commemorated in the Republic of Azerbaijan on a state level as the Day of Genocide of the Azerbaijanis and this is a manifestation of the national memory to the tragic events in the history of Azerbaijan during the last century.

“Acts of the Armenian chauvinists, who had been crazy with the fantasy of “the Great Armenia” and had resorted to all kinds of means to achieve this aim, are clearly seen in this tragic history of the Azerbaijani people. Right after the Gulustan and Turkmanchay Treaties the Russian Emperor Nicholas I on March 21, 1828 declared the establishment of “Armenian Province”. Thereafter, in accordance with Turkmanchay Treaty, resettlement of Armenians from Iran and Turkey to Azerbaijan was carried out. In February and March 1918, Armenians killed about 50,000 people in Baku, Shamakhy, Guba, Nakhchivan, Lankaran and other cities of Azerbaijan. Altogether 626 villages were completely destroyed in those territories. Establishment of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic on May 28, 1918 and forming a National Army put an end to the massacre. The Georgian and Armenian Republic came to being in the same year. Azerbaijan had to give some of its territories including Iravan to Armenia which did not satisfy them and made putting forward other territories claims to Azerbaijan and Georgia,” the article says.
