"It is meaningless to seek ways of compromise with negotiations with
a country without punishing them internationally for the cultural
genocide". The reason for this announcement of the Aldermen of the
Armenian Intellectuals Forum is the destruction of the Julfa khachqars.

The announcement which has been signed by Silva Kapoutikyan, Anna
Boyajyan, Khoren Palyan, Lenser Aghalovyan, Yervand Manaryan, Rafayel
Ghazaryan, David Sedrakyan, and Hrachya Matevosyan, mentioned that
"The latest cultural genocide was executed in the conditions of
the criminal silence of the international society. Moreover, during
those days with the intention to settle the Karabakh conflict with
an inexplicable haste the Minsk group co-chairs forced Armenia to
sit at the negotiation table with a country which makes a national
hero out of the murderer of a sleeping soldier".

The Aldermen of the Intellectuals Forum bring other examples too
proving the intolerant and military attitude of Azerbaijan. Founding
on these facts the Armenian Intellectuals Forum demands that the
Armenian authorities cease all the negotiations with Azerbaijan on
all the levels until the international community punishes Azerbaijan
for their crimes.
