No: 39, 26 February 2019, Press Release Regarding The 27th Commemoration Of The Khojaly Massacre

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 26.02.2019

On 26 February 1992, hundreds of Azerbaijani citizens including women and children were massacred, wounded, or taken hostages by the troops of Republic of Armenia during their attack on Khojaly town in Azerbaijan's Nagorno-Karabakh region.

As a result of this aggression against civilians and the Armenian occupation of the territories of Azerbaijan, more than a million Azerbaijanis became displaced from their homes and forced to live a refuge life in their homeland.

We strongly condemn this massacre and the ongoing occupation of the Azerbaijani territories by Armenia.

Turkey deeply commiserates with her Azerbaijani brothers and sisters over this massacre which they suffered 27 years ago in Khojaly, and sincerely shares their pain.

We wish God’s mercy upon those who lost their lives in this massacre and extend our condolences to our Azerbaijani brothers and sisters.
