STATEMENT of Azerbaijanis living abroad

We, Azerbaijanis living abroad and Azerbaijani diaspora organizations, declare with regret that, at around 6 AM on September 27, 2020, the Armenian armed forces violated the ceasefire and intensively fired on the positions of the Azerbaijani Army in the frontline using large caliber machine guns and sniper rifles. Opening fire on the civilians densely populated in the front-line areas and civil facilities is another deliberate and targeted provocation by the Armenian armed forces. As a result of the provocation of Armenian invasive forces, there are casualties among the civilian population and servicemen of Azerbaijan. Many houses and civil facilities were severely damaged.
Deliberate targeting of civilians is a gross violation of international humanitarian law, including the Geneva Conventions of 1949. In general, the Khojaly genocide committed in February 1992 and the Tovuz provocation happened in July 2020, when the world was fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, are clear examples of targeting civilians by the Armenian armed forces
Despite the ongoing General Debate at the UN General Assembly's 75th Session and the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Armenia one more time showed disregard to international law, UN Regulations and international community.
The provocation of the Armenian armed forces on the state border with Azerbaijan in the direction of the Tovuz region once again showed the world that Armenians are aggressor. The US Congress also characterized Armenia as an aggressor country. After all, Armenia is conducting the policy of illegal settlements in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan violating the requirements of the Geneva Convention and international law. Terrorists from different countries, such as Lebanon and Syria, are concentrated in the occupied territories.
Not implementing UN Security Council Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884, UN General Assembly resolutions on the "Situation in the Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" adopted in 2006 and 2008, and ignoring the appeals of the UN and WHO and other influential international organizations regarding the current pandemic, as well as the norms and principles of international law, Armenia's continues provocative actions. Thus, Armenia grossly violates fundamental human rights, including the right to life, by creating more dangerous situation in the region. These should be condemned by the international organizations and Armenia should stop aggression immediately.
We call on the world community and international organizations to influence the Armenian state to stop its aggressive policy and immediately liberate the occupied Azerbaijani territories, and to ensure that the Armenian government complies with international law and norms.
