On the eve of May 14th when Azerbaijan will take over the chairmanship to the Committee of Ministers, high-level body of the Council of Europe, the campaigns of several traditional anti-Azerbaijani organizations against our country extended. As usual, European Stability Initiative, Freedom House, Human Rights Watch and others among these organizations are particularly distinguished.
Indeed, these organizations hadn’t stopped their biased campaign against Azerbaijan; this campaign has dynamically strengthened since a few months and reached its peak on the eve of the visit of French President François Hollande and CoE Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland to our country and Azerbaijan’s forthcoming chairmanship in the Committee of Ministers on May 14th.
The problem on Sarsang should be considered as a part of ethnic cleansing policy launched by Armenians in 1905
The Association for Civil Society Development in Azerbaijan (ACSDA) dedicated its activity to ensuring national interests of Azerbaijani state and people and realized a lot of projects in this sphere.
In this regard, one of the ACSDA’s priorities is to deliver to the world community the truths regarding Armenians’ systemic and constant genocide crimes against Azerbaijani people, Armenian armed aggression against our country, ethnic cleansing policy against our nation in the occupied territories, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
20 percent of Azerbaijani territory including Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding provinces has been under Armenian occupation for about 25 years. As a result of forced migration and ethnic cleansing policies of Armenia, over a million Azerbaijani citizens became IDPs and refugees, facing grave human rights violations. Social and economic infrastructure of Azerbaijan in the occupied territories became destructed, thus resulting in serious social, economic and environmental losses. The damaged incurred on cultural and historical heritage in the occupied territories cannot be measured in monetary terms.

I am writing to you in order to address the grave situation on-going in the Republic of Ukraine. As I monitor the events unfolding around the Ukrainian crisis closely, I note strong discrepancies in the behavior of the European Union related to such illegal attacks against the territorial integrity and sovereignty of countries in the Eastern Partnership of the EU.

Narinji mother, who was born in 1900, has been attending good and bad days in Avakhil village, where she was born, until the last days of her life. That is why she was not only an old mother of a single kin, but all the land. In 2010, during the parliamentary elections I had a chance to know her more closely. Within a short period we became like mother and son. I will preserve this love till the end of my life.
I condole to all the residents of Shamakhi and Avakhil village, and all the relatives with the death of Narinj mother. God bless her!
