Dear co-chairmen of OSCE Minsk Group,
12 years ago, in 2006 in the web site of information agency “Regnum” there was an article «The tragedy of the Minsk group». https://regnum.ru/news/676963.html
Quote (our translation from Russian):
«The tragedy» of the OSCE Minsk Group is that «they do not discuss the essence of the problem… What is mutual concessions, when it is not clear who should give what to whom?» It is not realistic to talk about mutual concessions without a legal and historical basis. And it is no accident that on the basis of this error, the co-chairs are trying to bring the parties to an agreement. It is impossible, because all principles, after all, get stuck on the same issue, whose territory it is… In the region there is one country — Turkey, which committed the Armenian Genocide. And this (anti)civilizational model has earned in Azerbaijan. Therefore, we can’t come to an agreement on Karabakh.»
For our part, we declare that the denial, the silencing of the ongoing century-old genocidal policy and numerous genocidal acts from Azerbaijan against the Armenian people is not only immoral, but especially is sacrilegiously in the 30th year of genocidal crimes in Sumgait and in the 100th year of genocidal crimes in September 1918 in Baku. Without a political and legal assessment of the joint genocidal pan-turan policy of the tandem of the two Turkish states, Turkey and Azerbaijan, without taking into account the spirit of UN principles of genocide awareness and prevention it is impossible to talk about any «peacemaking process».
We believe that the Minsk Group’s approach is based on incorrect principles that do not correspond to historical reality. At the core of the Minsk Group lies the immoral hypocritical principle of «conflict», the principle of symmetry between the genocidal aggressor, the executioner and the object of aggression. For many years of «peacekeeping talks» hundreds of young Armenians have been killed. These «peacekeeping meetings» are too expensive — almost before each meeting the criminal authorities of Baku sanction sabotage or homicide on the grounds of hatred ideology. So, just three days before the co-chairs coming in the region (June 13), another Armenian was killed by the genocidal machine of the aggressor. Vahagn Eloyan was 26…
The keys to the problem lie not in Moscow, not in Washington, neither in Paris. They lie in the Truth, which the Minsk Group neglects in every possible way.
For many years previous co-chairs of the Minsk Group have received many critical written appeals from various public organizations of Armenia. Is it not a time to remove a cynical Berlin Wall of ignoring and listen to the point of view of public figures? We ask you to organize a meeting with representatives of our organization, whose members have been trumpeting Truth for decades and are urging you to listen to it.
On behalf of the «Yerevan Group on the Legal Recognition of the Armenian Genocide in Azerbaijan»
