Türkiye strongly condemns the massacre of innocent civilians by Armenian armed forces in the Azerbaijani town of Khojaly on February 26, 1992, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

The statement was issued on the 32nd anniversary of the Khojaly genocide committed by Armenian armed forces against innocent Azerbaijanis.  

The Turkish Foreign Ministry stated that the Khojaly massacre left a dark stain on the history of humanity.

“We still feel the pain of our 613 brothers and sisters who were killed in Khojaly and all Azerbaijanis wounded, captured or went missing on that day in our hearts.”

“We wish Allah’s mercy upon those who lost their lives during the Khojaly massacre and reiterate our condolences to the Azerbaijani people,” the ministry added.
