Joel Fresco: Khojaly tragedy essentially similar to genocide committed against Jewish people

Some European organizations continue to demonstrate an unfair position against Azerbaijan and don’t mention the occupation of Azerbaijani lands by Armenia and a mass slaughter of civilians. It is injustice, Joel Fresco, the co-chair and financier of the Jewish Historical Museum in the Netherlands, vice-president of the Association of European-Dutch businessmen, head of Jewish lobby in the Benelux countries told APA.

He said the ongoing developments in Europe and the Middle East, the Ukrainian crisis are often discussed while the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is overlooked.

“For us, the Khojaly massacre committed by Armenians is essentially similar to the act of genocide committed against the Jewish people during World War II. Armenia committed inhuman crimes in Nagorno-Karabakh, and it must be brought to justice,” he added.

The Jewish lobby is always ready to assist the Azerbaijani diaspora in bringing to the world community the truth about Azerbaijan, Fresco noted.

As part of the project “Azerbaijanis outside the border”, jointly launched by APA Holding and the State Committee on Work with Diaspora, meetings are being organized with Azerbaijanis working in some European countries.
