Further, representatives of various diaspora organizations made the condemning statements.
“These statements, as well as the detailed information about Khojaly tragedy, the statements of the international organizations regarding the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict were sent to the parliament, the Swedish Foreign Ministry, all political parties of the country, international organizations, media outlets, including such newspapers as Aftonbladet, Expressen, Dagens Nyheter and SVT,” the committee said.
