The statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia dated October 2, 2022, claiming that war crimes were committed by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, is an example of the hypocrisy of a country that has pursued an aggressive policy for decades, trampled on the fundamental rights of nearly a million people, and committed numerous war crimes against military and civilian persons.

APA received information about this from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan.

The information states the following:

"We emphasize that, unlike Armenia, Azerbaijan takes its international obligations seriously and claims related to crimes committed during military operations are investigated by relevant state institutions.

Thus, on September 17, 2022, the Military Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan declared that comprehensive investigations were launched to determine whether the videos spread on social networks are genuine, as well as the time and place where the images in the videos were taken, the identity of the military personnel depicted in them, as well as the objective truth.

We remind you that since the first Karabakh war Armenian armed forces committed unprecedented massacres not only against Azerbaijani military personnel, but also against civilians. In one night only on February 26, 1992, 613 civilians were brutally murdered in the city of Khojaly, 4000- No information was given about the fate of the nearest Azerbaijani.

In October 2020, crimes against humanity were committed by targeting the civilian population of the cities of Ganja, Barda, and Mingachevir in Azerbaijan.

The mine threat caused by Armenia is a serious threat to people's lives in the region today.

From November 2020 until now, up to 250 people, most of them civilians, have been victims of landmines.

The fact that the mines discovered in Azerbaijan's territories were produced in Armenia in 2021 is proof that Armenia continues its war crimes against Azerbaijanis by not handing over mine maps to Azerbaijan yet, on the other hand by burying new mines.

Until now, the Armenian government has not taken any practical measures to prevent the committed military sex crimes or to bring the relevant persons to justice for the committed crimes.

We strongly condemn Armenia's attempts to mislead the international community and hide its responsibility by spreading baseless claims.

We demand that Armenia comply with its international obligations and that those responsible for numerous war crimes be held accountable before the law.
