The statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia
dated October 2, 2022, alleging that war crimes were allegedly
committed by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, is an example of the
hypocrisy of a country that has pursued an aggressive policy for
decades, violated the fundamental rights of almost a million people
and committed numerous war crimes against military and civilian
persons, said the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry
in connection with the statement of the Armenian Foreign Ministry
on war crimes, reports.
'We emphasize that, unlike Armenia, Azerbaijan takes its
international obligations seriously, and allegations related to
crimes committed during military operations are investigated by the
relevant state institutions.
Thus, on September 17, 2022, the Military Prosecutor's Office of
the Republic of Azerbaijan announced that comprehensive
investigations had been launched to establish the authenticity of
the videos distributed on social networks, as well as the time and
place where the video was shot, the identity of the servicemen
shown on them, as well as the objective truth.
Recall that since the time of the first Karabakh war, the
Armenian armed forces committed an unprecedented massacre not only
over Azerbaijani soldiers, but also over civilians. On February 26,
1992, in the city of Khojaly, 613 civilians were brutally killed in
just one night, until today no information has been provided about
the fate of about 4,000 Azerbaijanis.
In October 2020, by subjecting the civilian population of the
cities of Ganja, Barda and Mingachevir of Azerbaijan to rocket
fire, crimes against humanity were committed.
The mines laid by Armenia today pose a serious threat to the
lives of people in the region. From November 2020 to the present,
up to 250 people have become victims of mines, mostly civilians.
The fact that the mines found on the territory of Azerbaijan were
produced in Armenia in 2021 is proof that Armenia continues its war
crimes against Azerbaijanis, still not handing over maps of mines
to Azerbaijan, but on the other hand, burying new ones.
The Government of Armenia has not yet taken any practical
measures to prevent the war crimes committed or to hold the
relevant persons accountable for the crimes committed.
We strongly condemn Armenia's attempts to mislead the
international community and hide its responsibility by spreading
We demand that Armenia fulfill its international obligations and
bring to justice those responsible for numerous war crimes,' the
press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said.
