And this genocide is recognized by more than 10 countries. We are blaming Armenia for suffering of million refuges and IDPs, who become refugees on their own lands, 40 thousand from Nagorno Karabakh, 750 thousand from other occupied territories of Azerbaijan and 200 thousands Azerbaijanis who expelled and ethnically cleansed from Armenia. These all of are results of Armenian occupation, result of your policy toward neighboring country. This occupation must be stopped. In order to achieve peace in the region - first condition is stop occupation of Azerbaijani lands”.
