26th Anniversary of the Occupation of Shusha-North Azerbaijan by Armenia

Baku, North Azerbaijan, May 8

26 years (May 8, 1992) have passed since the occupation of Shusha city by the armed forces of Armenia. The occupation resulted in the destruction of the town of Shusha and 30 villages in the region and the expulsion of more than 24,000 people, which was accompanied by great loss of life.

The North Azerbaijan official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Hikmet Hajiyev  stated n the occasion of the 26th anniversary of the occupation of the city of Shusha:”The occupation of Shusha is an integral part of the systematic aggression of Armenia against North Azerbaijan and its occupation policy.”

The 20th century alone saw Shusha, which occupies an important place in Azerbaijan`s history and is considered a museum of wildlife and a town of monuments, being burnt and destroyed by Armenian nationalists three times. Armenians carried out similar crimes in 1905-1906 and 1920.

In 1992, 25 schools, 31 libraries, 25 clubs and culture houses, tens of kindergartens, cinemas, sanatoriums, tourism facilities, museums, including State Drama Theatre and State Picture Gallery, Oriental music instruments factory, more than 170 houses, which were considered architectural monuments, nearly 160 historical and cultural monuments, temples and mosques were destroyed by Armenians in the Shusha region. Armenian vandals, who consider themselves a civilized nation, burned thousands of books and rare manuscripts. They did not even refrain from firing at monuments of outstanding art figures such as Uzeyir Hajibayli who created the world`s rare musical masterpieces.

Armenians have committed countless crimes against the people of North Azerbaijan. The years 1988-1993 alone saw bloody clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan claim 20,000 Azerbaijani lives, while 100,000 were injured and 50,000 became disabled. As a result of numerous terrorist attacks, 1,200 Azerbaijanis were murdered and more than 1,700 received injuries. Atrocities against peaceful Azerbaijanis have been in breach of all norms of international law, and are crimes against humanity. The Khojaly genocide alone is enough to confirm this. 

It Should be noted that The UN Security Council adopted resolutions 822 (1993), 853 (1993), 874 (1993) and 884 (1993), which condemn the occupation of territories and recognize the sovereignty and territorial integrity of North Azerbaijan. The Security Council confirmed that Nagorno-Karabakh is a part of North Azerbaijan and demanded the complete, immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all occupying troops from the Azerbaijani territories.
