International Association of Genocide Scholars issues statement condemning the Azerbaijani blockade of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh)
The Armenian WeeklyFeb 02, 2023Feb 02, 2023
The international community is right to condemn Azerbaijan’s cruel blockade. Starting from Since Dec. 12, 2022, Azerbaijan’s government began this operation designed to deprive the 120K Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh of food, gas, and medicine. This is a tragic abuse of human rights, and Azerbaijan’s blockade must end immediately.
Armenia is manipulating the emotions of the world trying to represent a legitimate and peaceful environmental protest as somehow an "inhumane blockade." On Feb.1 alone, over 1,200 cars passed through the Lachin corridor in both directions. This issue is being misrepresented to the world and US lawmakers.
