YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 28, ARMENPRESS: Those, who are to blame for
the massacres against the Azerbaijani Armenians, must be punished
punblicly, Grigori Ayvazyan - chairman of the Assembly of Azerbajani
Armenians - said today at a meeting with journalists.

The project of physical extirpation, banishment and genocide started to
be implemented February, 1988 from the city of Sumgait. As a result,
the 1-million Armenian community of Azerbaijan was spread in all over
the world. Grigori Ayvazyan says Azerbaijani authorities stood behind
the planning and implementation of the crime.

"The Azerbaijani authorities committed genocide against the local
peaceful Armenian civilians. And how can Azerbaijan have a moral,
political right towards the Nagorno Karabakh after this?" he said. He
mentioned that the Azerbaijani Armenians will go on the struggle
for justice.

The speaker mentioned that it is necessary to start
propaganda-explanatory activity in international organizations.

Besides, "the Republic of Armenia must recognize the events in
Azerbaijan as genocide". "We must lead a policy of initiaitives.

Azerbaijan's success in the propaganda warfare is connected with
the fact that we always lead a policy of responding to statements or
actions," the speaker said.

Grigori Ayvazyan expressed gratitude on behalf of the
Azerbaijani-Armenian community to all the persons, Diaspora-Armenian
and Armenian organizations, which still remember and mourn for the
innocent victims of the events.
