 Azerbaijan permanent representative to UN sends letter to Secretary-General Antonio Guterres

Permanent Representative of Azerbaijan to the United Nations Yashar Aliyev has sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Khojaly tragedy committed against Azerbaijanis by Armenia, as well as other acts of violence of Armenia against Azerbaijan, AzVision.az reports citing the Azerbaijani MFA. 

The letter reads that the ongoing armed conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan began at the end of 1987 with the former’s unlawful and groundless territorial claims on the Nagorno Karabakh autonomous province of Azerbaijan. Those claims marked the beginning of the assaults on the Azerbaijanis in and their expulsion from the autonomous province and Armenia itself.

"At the end of 1991 and the beginning of 1992, Armenia unleashed a full-scale war against Azerbaijan. As a result, a significant part of the territory of Azerbaijan,
including the Nagorno-Karabakh region, the seven adjacent districts and some
exclaves were occupied by Armenia. That period has been accompanied by an increase
in the magnitude, intensity and consistency of the attacks on Azerbaijani civilians in
the Nagorno-Karabakh region and in the surrounding districts of Azerbaijan".
