Khojaly massacre: commemorating 24th anniversary

 

As we take a look back in history, one of the greatest tragedies in the latest century is the Khojaly Massacre orchestrated by the Armenian Army that killed at least 613 ethnic Azerbaijani civilians from the town of Khojaly on February 25-26, 1992, during the War of Nagorno-Karabakh: 63 of them were children, 106 of them were women and 70 were old people. Eight families were completely destroyed, 25 children lost both of their parents, 130 children lost only one of their parents, 657 men became disabled, and 1275 were captivated and the fate of 150 captivated men is still unknown.

For Mr. Tale Hasanov, Editor in Chief of the European-Azerbaijan Information Center: “the current history has witnessed many bloody events. But to live horrors of Khojaly tragedy where women, old men and children were savagely killed and to bear this, is out of the human will. Only we, Azerbaijanis could live that tragedy. Because we are the nation who witnessed many tragedies throughout history…”

Azerbaijan: City of Julfa, home of Alinjagala castle

By Peter Tase

April 21, 2015

Julfa region of the Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan is home of the Alinjagala Castle atop of the mountain that carries the same name. The fortress is located on the right banks of Alinjachay.  According to the ancient sources this historic landmark has been identified with the names of: “Erinjag”, “Erinjik”, “Alanjik”, “Alinja”, “Alanjug”.  For Basrad Pashayev, a local scholar and journalist, the name of Alinjagala is related to the old Turkish word “alan” having in mind the meaning of “plain land” that is because of the location where the castle was built which happens to be flat.   “Alinjak” means “taking off your hand”, it is also related with the invincibility of the fortress.  There are various versions about the construction of Alinjagala.

Rui Gonzales Clavico, the ambassador of Henry III, king of Castilla, as a Spanish diplomat to the government of Teymurilar in 1403 – 06 describes Alinjagala with the following: “Alinjagala is situated on a high and precipitous mountain surrounded by walls and towers.  Within the walls, towards the mountain slopes down there are vineyards, gardens, cornfields, springs and pools.   Based to ancient historical sources the castle was built over two thousand years ago.  Other historians explain that the castle was built on the period of Sasani Government during the III and VII centuries.  According to middle age sources, Alinjagala was described as a strong fortification and Alinja was considered as a fortress, mountain and river. Various historians such as Asoghik (928-1019), Sharafaddin Ali Yazdi (XV Century), Evliya Chelebi (XVII Century) and others have widely written about Alinja. The extraordinary view of the Alinjagala (Alanjik) fortress attracts many foreign visitors.  It is the symbol of strength, military strategy and for centuries has been a critical geostrategic castle.  The walls of Alinjagala castle begin from the slopes of the Alinja Mountain and rise until fully embracing the top of the mount…………………………………..

EU turns blind eye towards pro-European aspirations of Azerbaijan – expert

Baku, Azerbaijan, April 21

By Anakhanum Khidayatova – Trend:

The EU is turning a blind eye towards the pro-European aspirations of Azerbaijan and Turkey, political analyst, expert on international relations at Marquette University (USA), Peter Tase told Trend April 21.

“The EU is also favoring Yerevan despite the fact that Armenia is a trusted satellite of Russia,” he said. “The latter is experiencing heavy economic sanctions from the West and EU countries.”

“Armenia, a member of Eurasian Economic Union (EAU), has a tarnished and underdeveloped economy,” he said. “It has a biased foreign policy which is closely coordinated with Moscow. It conducts consistent campaigns towards manipulating the Southern Caucasus history. It is also causing irreparable damage to image of Azerbaijan in the world.”

The expert said that on the other hand, Baku’s foreign policy and attitude in international affairs is as mature and sophisticated as any other country of Western Europe.

“Azerbaijan’s promotion of peaceful solution of the current obstacles that hinder national territorial integrity of the country is one of the essential values of Western moral thought and traditions,” he said.

“Meanwhile, these great principles in Azerbaijan’s foreign policy are not cherished and valued accordingly by Brussels and European Commission,” the expert said.

“While keeping this vacuum in mind, Washington, D.C. must play a more effective role in providing a solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and withdraw itself from taking actions based on the manipulations and fabrications undertaken by Armenian public relations organizations,” he said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council’s four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.

Peter Tase is the author of “Simultaneous Dictionary in Five Languages, Guarani, Albanian, English, Italian, Spanish” and Author of three books on Paraguayan and Latin American Studies.

Armenia must fulfill requirements of four UN Security Council resolutions

Tue 31 March 2015 07:43 GMT | 2:43 Local Time

he armed conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan started as the Soviet Union was falling apart.  At this time the ethnic Armenians in Azerbaijan’s province of Nagorno-Karabakh rallied to join Armenia. In front of this situation Moscow, according to the Foreign Affairs Magazine, “armed both sides and played them against each other, turning a local dispute over the status of a territory inhabited by 90,000 people into a regional war.”

For nearly six years, the newly independent countries of Armenia and Azerbaijan fought over this territory, leaving 30,000 dead and creating approximately a million refugees. Ultimately, Yerevan was victorious, and it took control of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven other districts in the sovereign territory of Azerbaijan.  These aggressive actions of Armenia, which continue to affect this region until the present, are of unprecedented proportions in the world history, not only for the loss of human lives but also for violating four of the UN Security Council Resolutions and over all conducting a protracted warfare for more than two decades by constantly breaching, unilaterally, the cease fire that was brokered in 1994.

It must be noted that from time to time, Moscow has provided information and armaments to Armenia while encouraging the latter to continue with its provocative attitude. According to Foreign Policy Magazine “Russia has thousands of troops stationed in Armenia, it runs the country’s air defenses, and it controls key elements of its economy and infrastructure. As long as Moscow backs Yerevan, Baku can do little to make peace with its neighbor.”
