Sandra White, MP from Scottish National Party, has submitted to the Parliament of Scotland a motion on the Khojaly Massacre.

The parliament recognizes that 26 February 2016 marks the 24th anniversary of the attack on the town of Khojaly in Azerbaijan by the invading Armenian forces, the motion reads.


The document expresses sympathy to the families of the 613 men, women and children who were killed during this attack, notes that the UN Security Council resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884, which call on the Armenian forces to end the occupation of Azerbaijan, remain unfulfilled, is concerned about the recent reported escalation in tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

“The events in Khojaly a sobering reminder of the terrible damage that can be inflicted in wartime and the enduring need for greater understanding, communication and tolerance among people around the world. Azerbaijanis living in Scotland and around the globe observe 26 February every year as a day of remembrance, honoring the victims of the Khojaly massacre, and hope that, through highlighting the anniversary of the tragedy, international efforts to find a lasting peaceful resolution to this long-standing conflict will be renewed,” the motion reads.
