/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Every year on the threshold the anniversary of
the massacres of Armenians in Sumgait taken place February 26-28
Baku is activating anti-Armenian propaganda at all the levels",
NKR Foreign Ministry's press service reports on the occasion of the
"Khodaly events" commemorated in Baku. With distorting the facts
Azerbaijan periodically reverts to the events of the 1992 when
weapon emplacements were being eliminated in the village of Khojaly
of the Askeran region of NKR. According to the version of official
Baku about 600 thousand of civilians were killed in Khojaly and this
figure increases year by year. With all this Azerbaijan does not give
up attempts to misinform the international community. It should be
noted that official Baku and Turkey are collaborating on the issue.
This year the Turkish parliament held discussions on the Khojaly
events. Anti-Armenian statements were lately made by the Turkish
lobbyists in the US Congress as well. These actions testify of an
awkward attempt of Baku and Ankara to equate the events on Khojaly
and the Armenian Genocide", the NKR MFA release says.
