YEREVAN (YERKIR) - Armenian cultural monuments of Nakhichevan can
be spoken about only in the past tense, Hayk Demoyan, Candidate
of Historical Sciences, told journalists. "This was an outcome of
vandalism policy of Azerbaijan against Armenian monuments for many
years," he said.

According to Demoyan, such cruel policy is being pursued in Azerbaijan
for many years at the state level. In his words, full extermination
of the Armenian cultural presence in Old Jugha was a logical outcome
of that policy, reports Novosti-Armenia.
