The problem on Sarsang should be considered as a part of ethnic cleansing policy launched by Armenians in 1905

The problem on Sarsang should be considered as a part of ethnic cleansing policy launched by Armenians in 1905The 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.


Actual international view as a result of the occupation of Azerbaijani territories

Actual international view as a result of the occupation of Azerbaijani territories1. Armed aggression and occupation by Armenia inflicted serious material and moral damage.


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.

Dear Presidents,


            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.


Somenotes regardinghearingsin Advisory Committee of the European Parliament on February 11, 2014

On February 10, 2014, a number of mass media means of Azerbaijan spread information that the European Parliament will punish 7 MEPs, who observed Presidential elections in Azerbaijan on 9thOctober.The information stated that on February 11, cases of PinoArlacchi, Head of Election Observation Mission of European Parliament, as well as of mission’s members FilipKaczmarek, Yoachim Zeller, YevgenyKirilov, Norica Nicolai, Milan Cabrnoch, Fiorello Provera will be considered and they will face the sanctions of Advisory Committee.

The eldest resident of Shamakhi, 113 years old Narinj mother has passed away.

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!

Elkhan Suleymanov, MP from Shamakhi

In this letter I mentioned once more that there were resolutions of the UN Safety Council, European Parliament, Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe criticizing the occupation of the Azerbaijan lands by Armenia and requiring liberation of the occupied Azerbaijan territories unconditionally and asked you to reply the question on criteria of calling democratic the elections held in the occupier state and some other questions. However, I was really shocked at your reply letter dated of 11.07.2013. Thus, the letter obviously stated that, You haven’t personally read and got acquainted with the contents of the letter I sent You. Therefore, I would like to inform You about the followings besides consulting to read this letter once more.
