"31 March Genocide left deep traces in Azerbaijan history. This trace, historical event, proof of genocide can be clearly seen in Guba mass grave" said Ali Aliyev, chairman of Remedium Law Centre. He stated in his speech that it was time to end the political games of the countries demonstrating the double standards. Ali Aliyev stated that on December 31, 2010, the Governor of U.S. State of Nevada, Jim Gibson had announced March 31, 1918 as the Memorial Day of the mass extermination of the civil population and emphasized the importance of the assessment of the barbarism which had been committed in the spring of 1918 against the Turkish-Muslim population as genocide.

During the genocide of March 1918, 11 thousand Turkish-Muslim people were killed in Baku. The most corpses were not found. According to witnesses, the Armenians had thrown the corpses to the fired houses, sea and the wells for losing the track of the crime.
