As part of a military campaign launched using the Armenian autonomous oblast of Nagorno Karabakh as a pretext, Armenian and Russian armed forces attacked the town of Khojaly, completely destroying it and massacring the helpless inhabitants. They killed 613 civilians, including 83 children and 106 women. The fate of over 150 people is still unknown to this day.
The undeclared war that had been going on since 1988 claimed the lives of around 20 thousand Azeri victims. First, Armenian armed forces drove 250 thousand Azeri people away from their homeland in Armenia where they had lived for centuries, then, after a blatant military aggression and occupation, they displaced 660 thousand Azerbaijani citizens from the occupied territories, conducting a brutal ethnic cleansing. Armenia still occupies nearly one fifth of the territory of Azerbaijan to this day. Nagorno Karabakh is just a minor part of the total occupied territory, most of which had an Azeri majority.
The UN Security Council, the Council of Europe, the OSCE and the European Parliament have passed resolutions or issued statements in order to settle the matter. Solutions have always failed due to the resistance of Armenia. The objective is still the same today: to restore the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, to discontinue the Armenian military occupation and ensure that the refugees could return home. Therefore Jobbik re-submits its draft resolution of April 11, 2011, this time also mentioning the countries in the explanation which adopted proclamations condemning the Khojaly genocide in the past two years.
Jobbik Movement for a Better Hungary - as a token of the solidarity of Turan kinship - supports Azerbaijan's efforts to restore the truth, solve the conflict and make a long-term peace.
