PanARMENIAN.Net - Georgia's Gruzia Online news agency has published
the official statement of Armenian embassy in Georgia on the 25th
anniversary of the pogroms against Armenians in Azerbaijani city
of Sumgait.

"Today, Armenia and Armenian Diaspora honor the memory of innocent
victims of Sumgait pogroms, masterminded 25 years ago.

The policy of violence and ethnic cleansing against Armenians in
Sumgait continued in Baku on Jan 13-20, 1990, with several hundred
of Armenians falling victims, despite the official Azerbaijani data
reporting only 49 victims.

25 years have already passed, but Armenian people will never forget
the victims. We are certain that sooner or later both the murderers
and rapists of innocent people and those giving them hero's welcome
will be punished for their crimes," the statement reads.
