YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 29, ARMENPRESS. Speaker of Parliament Alen Simonyan has warned his counterparts from Council of Europe member states that Azerbaijan is perpetrating ethnic cleansing in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“Azerbaijan continues to perpetrate ethnic cleansing right now,” Simonyan said at the European Conference of Presidents of Parliament in Dublin. “Tens of thousands of people are leaving their homes, and this is happening in the 21st century in front of the whole world. This is true evil…”

84,770 forcibly displaced persons have crossed into Armenia from Nagorno-Karabakh as of Friday morning amid the ongoing mass exodus following the September 19-20 Azerbaijani attack which ended after Nagorno-Karabakh authorities agreed to Azerbaijan’s terms in a Russian-brokered ceasefire deal.
