Foreign Ministry: The European Union has failed to clearly react to war crimes committed by Azerbaijan

Armenia's Foreign Ministry has reacted to the statement by the European External Action Service on the so-called “strikes on the city of Ganja.”

The Ministry points to the the fact that for three weeks now, Azerbaijan has been violently shelling the cities and villages of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh), including its capital Stepanakert, deliberately targeting civilian population and civilian infrastructures, killing dozens of peaceful citizens and forcing them to leave their homeland. In addition to this, Azerbaijan has already targeted and inflicted casualties on the civilian population and infrastructures in the territory of the Republic of Armenia.

It reminds that for decades, Azerbaijan has been infusing its population with hatred and Armenophobia, the gravest expression of which can be found in the footages of humiliating, torturing and subsequent brutal killings of Artsakhi prisoners of war, proudly showcased in Azerbaijani social media.

Furthermore, disseminating unfounded allegations, Azerbaijan continues to refuse to maintain ceasefires mediated by the leaders of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairing countries and categorically rejects any possibility of ceasefire verification mechanisms in order to continue the war.

"The European Union has, to date, failed to clearly and explicitly react to these ultimate manifestations of war crimes committed by Azerbaijan with direct involvement of Turkey including through transfer of foreign terrorist fighters from Syria and Libya, and disregarded the existential threat and grave violations of the right to life of Artsakhi people, as well as the severe humanitarian crisis evolving in Artsakh," the statement reads, adding: "Armenia deplores this one-sided, biased and selective statement, which gives Azerbaijan “clearance” to continue breaching with impunity the international law, including the international humanitarian law and international customary law."
