Recognition of the Khojaly massacre in Mexico


At the end of 2011 the Senate of Mexico adopted a resolution on the agreement of the provisions of the Nagorno-Garabagh conflict. The decision said that on February 26, 1992, units of the Armed Forces of Armenia attacked civilian population in the town of Khojaly of Nagorno-Garabagh region of Azerbaijan and committed genocide as it was stated without hesitation by the international human rights organizations, on the basis of their ethnicity, and during this massacre the hundreds of people were killed.
The decision at the same time reminds about the process of settlement of the Nagorno-Garabagh conflict, the occupation of Azerbaijani territories by Armenia, and the essence of the Madrid principles was disclosed and the importance of return of internally displaced persons and refugees to their previous place of residence was noted.
The decision also stated that Mexican MP-s respect the sovereignty of Azerbaijan and Armenia and call conflicting parties for making more efforts for settlement of Nagorno-Garabagh conflict as soon as possible and also called OCSE Minsk Group to provide all required support for peaceful settlement of the conflict.
It was also stated in the decision that, in spite of passing of 19 years since Khojaly massacre, the victims of the crime could not achieve justice and it still shows that the central element of any peace agreement should be in its place in a short period of time, as well as relations among the people should be restored as soon as possible, and the harmony between two nations should be re-established.
