Ethnic Cleansing is underway in Artsakh – Armenian Prime Minister

Armenian Prime Minster Nikol Pashinyan has said at a government meeting on 28 September that a campaign of ethnic cleansing, of which Yerevan has been warning the international community is currently taking place. 


“The exodus of Armenians from Nagorno-Karabakh continues as a result of the policy of ethnic cleansing carried out by Azerbaijan. Analysis shows that no Armenian will be left in Nagorno-Karabakh in the coming days. This is a direct act of ethnic cleansing and dispossession, and what we’ve been warning about the international community for a long time. The statements made by various international actors condemning ongoing ethnic cleansings in Nagorno-Karabakh are important, but if no substantial actions follow, these statements will be viewed only for creating a moral statistics for history,” Pashinyan said.

He warned that various countries, by simply making statements and not taking action, are trying to have an opportunity to distance themselves from this crime, in order to later be able to say ‘well, we had condemned it.’
“If no relevant political and legal decisions follow the statements on condemning it, the condemnations become acts of giving consent to what is happening. Regarding the government of Armenia, our primary duty today is to receive our brothers and sisters forcibly displaced from Nagorno-Karabakh with the utmost care and ensure their urgent needs are met,” Pashinyan said.
