Türkiye always stands by Azerbaijan – foreign minister

    POLITICS  26 February 2024 - 14:05

    Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan has made a post on his X account, saying Türkiye always stands by Azerbaijan.

    "We honour the memory of our brothers who were killed 32 years ago in Khojaly before the eyes of the whole world. I express my condolences to Azerbaijan," a post by Turkish FM says, Caliber.Az reports.

    "Türkiye always stands by Azerbaijan," FM Fidan posted.

    The Khojaly genocide is the gravest crime of genocide committed against peaceful Azerbaijani people in the course of Armenia’s aggressive war against Azerbaijan. On the night of February 25-26, 1992, in violation of all international legal norms, Armenian armed forces attacked the civilian population of the sieged town of Khojaly with heavy military equipment, killing them with unprecedented brutality and razing the town to the ground.

    As a result of crime against not only the people of Azerbaijan but against humanity, 613 civilian Azerbaijanis, including 63 children, 106 women and 70 elders were brutally murdered on grounds of national identity. The Khojaly genocide is one of a series of acts of mass slaughter aiming to crush those who rose up for the defence of their lands from Armenian armed forces’ aggression, to break their will to fight and annihilate the Azerbaijani population of then-time Nagorno-Karabakh.
