Jordanian Senate issues statement on Khojaly genocide

The Senate of Jordan has issued a statement on Khojaly genocide, according to a letter addressed by the Jordanian Senate Chairman Tahir Masri to the Azerbaijani ambassador Sabir Agabayov on 28 May.
“The Senate has adopted a statement about a visit of a group of senators to Azerbaijan and the 20th anniversary of the Khojaly genocide. Hundreds of innocent people lost their lives in this massacre along with those wounded and missing. This is an act of violence against the sovereignty of Azerbaijan and a tragedy of your people, the human rights and humanity,” the letter says.
The letter further says: “The Jordan Senate supports the position of Jordan which advocates for peaceful resolution of conflicts and urges to refrain from violence and avoid any contradiction and promote peace, love and values of cooperation and also urges to solve the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in line with international legal principles and sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.”
“The Senate also supports the decisions of the member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) recognizing Khojaly tragedy as a genocide and a crime against humanity and calling to take due steps to get this massacre recognized,” the letter adds.
