Shirak Torosyan: Pogroms of Armenians in Baku was another  manifestation of the genocidal policies of Turkey and Azerbaijan  towards the Armenian people

ArmInfo. The pogroms of the Armenian population in Baku was another manifestation of the genocidal policies of Turkey and Azerbaijan in relation to the  Armenian people. This was announced on January 21 from the rostrum of  the parliament by the lawmaker from the My Step faction Shirak  Torosyan. According to him, conclusions should be drawn from these  lessons of history.

"The goal of Turkey, since the 19th century, is  to embody the idea of pan-Turkism. Armenia is their main obstacle in  this way, therefore, the Turks will not stop their aggressive policy  towards the Armenian people and our statehood.

Therefore, we must convey to our colleagues, at regional and  international platforms, this goal of Turkey, and urge them to unite  against the idea of pan-Turkism. We must remember and raise the issue  related to the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Because it's precisely the  memory of our tragic past that will help us succeed in the future, "  the lawmaker noted.

Torosyan also said that as a result of this policy of Azerbaijan, the  Armenian population was expelled from Nakhichevan. "We must live in  our historical territories. As a result of genocide and ethnic  cleansing, the Armenians almost completely left the territories under  their control in Turkey and Azerbaijan. This means that we lost, but  as a result of the liberation struggle of Artsakh we started to win.  We have the right to return our historical territories. When we are a  single force, we can fulfill all our dreams, "Torosyan emphasized. It  should be noted that exactly 30 years ago the Armenian pogroms in  Baku began. Hundreds of inhabitants of Azerbaijani capital were  killed just because they were Armenians. Thousands of people fled.
