US New Mexico Senate formally recognizes Khojaly Massacre
# 31 January 2013 23:36 (UTC +04:00)

The resolution recognizing the mass killings of Azerbaijani civilians was introduced to US New Mexico Senate by Senator Gerald Ortiz Pino.


The document speaks about the nature of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan and presents details of the massacre of peaceful Azerbaijani civilians, committed by the Armenian armed forces on February 25-26, 1992 after occupation of Khojaly and killing of more than 600 people, including children, women and elderly.

The author underlines that “many civilians bodies found in Khojaly after the fight were disfigured and mutilated, making this one of the most inhumane and barbaric battles of the war”.

The state issued document points out that 20 percent of the territory of Azerbaijan, including its Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 adjacent districts, is under occupation of Armenian armed forces, despite the UN Security Council resolutions condemning occupation of Azerbaijani territories.

Today, a similar resolution was adopted in the House of Representatives. The author of the resolution introduced to the House of Representatives is Debby Rodell.
