Baku, 25 December 2017 –

Armenia started the next military against Azerbaijan since 1988, occupied the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast (the territory of 4388 km2) and the surrounding districts – Akhdam, Fuzuli, Lachin, Kabajar, Jabrayil, Kubadli, Zangilan. As a result of "ethnic cleaning'' policy of Armenia more than 250000 Azerbaijanis became refugees in only 1988-1992 from the present Armenian territory, as a result of occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh and 7 surrounding districts nearly 700000 Azerbaijanis became a force displaced refugee, more than 20000 people were killed, more than 50000 people were wounded or invalid, about 4866 people were taken captive or hostage during 1988-1993. 314 of them were women, 58 of them were children and 255 of them were old people.

The UN Security Council adopted 4 resolutions about Nagorno-Karabakh. In all of these resolutions the sovereignty, territorial integrity, inviolability of the internationally recognized borders are confirmed. But in none of the resolutions Armenia has been identified as an aggressor state and this is the main reason of the problem being remained not solved.

The UN General Assembly resolution 3314 (1974) – "Identification of the aggression'' classifies the aggression on the basis of the below mentioned statements: a) The attack of a state’s armed forces to the territory of another state or any occupation by means of military, occupation of the territory of another state by force, b) Any armed attack to the territory of another state, v) Armed forces being sent by the state or on behalf of the state to carry out the above mentioned actions against the other state. Moreover, in the item "f'' of the 3rd paragraph of the resolution it is stated that any state must not allow its territory to be benefit for aggression against another state, in opposite case, this action itself is considered to be an aggressive action.

1. The factors proving the aggressive policy of Armenia.

The decisions of the Supreme Soviet of Armenia on the integration of Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia

The Supreme Council of Armenia making the decision of the integration of Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia in 1989 proved its aggressive policy against Azerbaijan. The Supreme Council of Armenia that continues to violate the sovereignty of the state of Azerbaijan made the decision of establishment of the election constituency in the territory of Azerbaijan and holding elections for the Supreme Council there. The acceptance of the official document of "About the integration of the Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia SSR'' in 1st December 1989 can be regarded as a policy aimed for violating the territorial integrity of the other states, because Armenian SSR and Nagorno-Karabakh have never been a single state. In the 3rd item of the decision it is stated: "The Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR and the National Assembly of Nagorno-Karabakh declare the integration of the Nagorno Karabakh to the republic of Armenia. The inhabitants of the Nagorno-Karabakh are the citizens of Armenian SSR.'' In the 4th item it is shown "Armenian SSR Supreme Council and Nagorno-Karabakh to establish the joint commission to do practical work for integrating the Armenia SSR and Nagorno Karabakh.'' In the 6th item it is noted: "In the system of the single state taking the necessary measures for real integration of the political, economic, cultural structures of the Armenian SSR and Nagorno-Karabakh is entrusted to the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR, the Soviet of Ministers of the Armenian SSR and the Presidium of the National Assembly of the NKAO''. Thus, the aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan was committed by the Supreme legislature – Supreme Soviet. The Supreme Soviet adopted the state program of the economic development including the economic development program of the Nagorno-Karabakh. When Armenia joined to the UN and the OSCE, based on the international law the Armenian Supreme Soviet, which didn’t recognize the fictitious Nagorno-Karabakh Republic as a part of the Azerbaijan, stated that the below mentioned decision has been made: "To provide the defense of the fictitious Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and its population; to consider the agreements indicating the Nagorno-Karabakh as an integral part of Azerbaijan to be impossible; to conduct the military mobilization in the Armenia Republic” Armenia implies the "right of self-determination of peoples'' principle without realizing it by declaring that he doesn’t recognize the fictitious Nagorno-Karabakh Republic as the part of Azerbaijan based on the international law. Separatists being members of parliament once again proved the aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan. The Supreme Soviet didn’t adopt any act about cancellation of the mentioned decisions after conducting the referendum about the sovereignty of Armenia.

Having the separatists in the Armenian administration.

The leader of the armed forces of fictitious Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Robert Kocharyan was elected a deputy from election constituency number 99. Separatists being members of parliament once again proved the aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan. The occupation of Jabrayil, Zangilan, Fuzuli was arranged by R. Kocharyan and S. Sarkisyan who supported Armenian terrorist actions. R. Kocharyan, who was the president of fictitious NKR from 1994 to 1997, later on was the prime minister of Armenia and from 1998 to 2008 he was the president of the republic of Armenia. Now the government of Sarkisian continues massive terror acts against Azerbaijanis at the state level in Armenia as R.Kocharyan did the same, who worked in leading positions, supplying the Armenian groups which arranged attacks resulting in killing of thousands of people and the massive repel of more than 1 billion people from Khankendi and the other settlements. On 12th of February 1988, the first rally against Azerbaijanis was also organized under Kocharyan’s leadership. Since the first months of the events, subversion actions resulting in burning of 4 houses at the entrance of Khojali city and injury of some Azerbaijani residents were committed in particular under the organization and direct leadership of R. Kocharyan, S. Sarkisyan and Arkadi Kukasyan. Coming to Asgaran district education department from Khankendi in 1988 to propagandize against Azerbaijanis and arranging a meeting, R.Kocharyan requested the tutorial collective never forget these tragedies and educate the pupils in the nationalistic spirit, reminding that the Turks and Azerbaijanis had committed notorious "genocide''. The director of Jamilly village school Gasim Girxqizli and his assistant KhudayarKuliyev who attended in the meeting, stated that they had left the meeting protesting against the nationalistic speech of R. Kocharyan.

The current president of Armenia – S. Sarkisyan was born in Khankendi city, had his education in Yerevan city. Being elected the president of Armenia in 2008 February, Sarkisyan was acting as the First Secretary of the City Komsomol Committee of the Khankendi city when the events started. He was an active member of "Krunk” and "Dashnaksutyun” parties. The provision of the Armenians of Khankendi with weapon, killing of 25 people by first stonewareing, then firing of the buses transporting Azerbaijanis on the route of Akhdam-Shusha, the shot of the "Mi-8'' helicopter on flight from Akhdam to Shusha in 1989, the first attack to Malibeyli village and killing of two Azerbaijanis in the border of Asgaran-Akhdam regions were in particular arranged by S. Sarkisyan.

During that period S. Sarkisyan was dealing with the transferring of the firearms and ammunitions from the Armenia and distribution of them to the NK Armenians. In the interview with the British writer and journalist, the famous researcher of Karnegi Fund, the specialist on Karabakh conflict Thomas de Vaal the current president Sarkisyan states about the Khodjali genocide: "Until the Khodjali genocide Azerbaijanis thought that they were just joking with us. Azerbaijanis though that Armenians are the people of not capable to do harm to the civilian people. It was time to change these thoughts and we did it'' The fictitious NKR was not even been recognized by Armenia, it is under its control and  administration and it once again shows that Armenia established a fictitious NKR and integrated that to its territory. Armenia, by creating the fictitious Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, carries out its own administration there.

2. The direct participation of the Armenian army in the occupation.

The secret visit of the Armenian Defense Minister to Akhdere region of Azerbaijan on March 10, 1993, the assessment of the combat ability of the army, the statements of the military captives proves that Armenia is directly involved in aggression. Such as, some Armenian soldiers were taken a captive when the army of Azerbaijan beat off the attack by the Chanli village of Kalbajar region. The head of the 4th military commissariat division in the Gumru (Leninakan) city, captain Grigoryan Ashot Agasiyevich, the assistant of the Chief Military Officer of 2nd Military Commissariat Division, senior lieutenant Badoyan Samvel Derenikovich again of Gumru city were among the captives. The meeting of Armenian military captives was arranged with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of National Security of Azerbaijan, the UN diplomatic accredited corps in Baku, also local and foreign journalists. The captives unambiguously stated that, that is Armenia who leads the war in the territory of Azerbaijan, even they were against of antiwar protests in different cities of Armenia. On 14th of January 1994 the Government representatives themselves repelled the antiwar meeting in Yerevan. 83th brigade of the Armenian armed forces occupied Fizuli region, since May 1992 he took the occupied Lachin region under control. The representative of the UN confirmed the application of T-72 tanks, Mi-24 fighter jets, the modern military aviation and the attack by not only the local ethnic powers (Armenians). Then who was doing these? UN General Secretary didn’t identify that. The commission was not organized for identification of the source of the weapons of NK self-defensive forces. In their report OSCE observers stated that, there were many Armenian military servants in Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan in the period of presidential elections in 1998 in Armenia. Serving of the Armenian soldiers at the NK was stated in the report of 2005 of the international group of preventing the crisis at the NK of USA State Department.. In the report it was shown that 8500 of the soldiers serving in NK army were Armenians from NK and 10000 of them from Armenia and the former men bound for military service were sent to the occupied territory by force. The documents obtained when the Armenian military servants sent to Azerbaijan for occupation of Kalbajar were taken a captive, the military map with the gryphon of "Sekretnoekr number-1'' regarding to the occupation of Kalbajar and keeping the occupied lands of Azerbaijan signed by G. Andresyan (the scale of 1:50000), the documents about assigning the military rank for the attendance in occupation of Lachin and Kalbajar are the facts confirming the aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan.  Russia supports the invader policy of Armenia from the beginning of the problem. The problems like locating the 102nd military base in the Armenia and armament of Armenia by Russia should worry the neighbor countries as well. Locating of the military base of Russia in the region is the physiological pressure tool in the region. In July 2016 the decision was made to establish the Mutual Armed Union of Armenia and Russia.

3. The intensification of Armenia's military aggression

Armenians burned Jamilli village in 15th December 1991, Mehsali on 24th December, Karkijahan on 28th of December, on January 18-19th of 1992 Nabiler village, Imaret Garvand village of Akhdere region, Malibeyli and Gushchular villages at night to 12th of February, killed the inhabitants, 28 people were killed, 39 people were seriously injured. In Meshali village Armenians killed 27 inhabitants, seriously injured more than 15 people. Among the killed there were underage, pupils and a 75 year old man. Corpses of 11 of them were burned. Karadagli, Axullu and Salaketin villages of Khojavend region were exposed to massacre from 13rd of February till the 17th. 146 people were killed, 118 people were taken captive (child, woman, old), 33 people were shot by Armenians on the armed attack to the Karadagli village. The same time, they kept the killed and injured all together throwing into the farm well. 77 of captives were killed, 6 of them were burned alive and 50 people were released from captivity with great difficulty. 18 people released from captivity died from their healing wounds.  The treatment of the captives in  a beastly manner, in a vandal manner, cutting heads of people, burying them alive, removing their teeth forcibly, keeping them hungry and thirsty, killing them by with torture were the most severe crime against humanity. In Karadagli village four people were killed in each of the two families, 42 families lost their head, nearly 140 children were orphaned. In total, in this village which the inhabitants were systematically exposed to massacre, 91 people were killed, which means 1 out of 10 people.

At night of 25th February to 26th in 1992, the most severe tragedy of the century - Khojaly genocide was committed. Armenians occupied Khojali by involvement of Russia’s 366th moto-shooting group in Khankendi. 613 people were killed with torture, 487 people were wounded, 1275 people were taken captive, 8 family were completely destroyed, the city was burned, 25 children lost both parents, 130 children lost one parent in the genocide of Azerbaijanis. 106 of killed were woman, 83 of killed were children. More than 70 of them were old people, 56 people were burned alive with torture, the skin of their head was peeled off, their eyes were removed, heads were cut, abdomen of the pregnant women were engraved with a bayonet.

Keeping the military captives and hostages in the Armenian territory

In the resolution number 1553, 2007 of Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe regarding to disappeared people, the necessity of reporting of parties about the disappeared people during armed conflict, the worry of the Parliament of the hiding the number of disappeared people, disappearing of 4499 Azerbaijanis during NK conflict is stated. According to the report of the State Commission of the Republic of Azerbaijan related to military captives, hostages and disappeared people on 1st of January 2008, the number of disappeared people is 4210. 47 of them are children, 256 of them are women and 355 are old. The Armenian separatist groups tortured the civilians as well as captives, brutally beat, insulted them, turned into a buying and selling object violating the international law norms, at most cases didn’t release the captives after obtaining a lot of money from their possessors, killed them with torture or sold their organs, conducted experiments on them. 23 people were shot out of 300 Azerbaijani captives kept in the camp near Spitak city of Armenia. Armenian Ministry of the Foreign Affairs reported that 8 Azerbaijanis were shot because of their trial of escape. On March 23, 1993 by the initiative of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Azerbaijan could receive 10 corpses. Healthcare authorities of Azerbaijan and the independent expert doctor Derek Paundor confirmed the shot of the military captives. Researches of the Forensic Medical Examination Commission of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Azerbaijan rejecting the report of Armenian Ministry of the Foreign Affairs Press service proved that the captives were beaten and exposed to torture prior to being killed. Military captives R. Agayev, E. Ahmadov, E. Mammadov, G. Mammadov, F. Guliyev, E. Ahmadov were shot from grunge, B. Giyasov were shot from the chest from the near distance. R. Agayev, E. Mammadov and E. Ahmadov’s ears were cut off. Also the internal organs of R.R.Agayev - heart, liver, spleen were removed. On the crops of I. Nasirov there were the signs of smell proving the long time starvation. On the crop of F. Huseynov many signs of torture were observed. UN representatives also witnessed brutal torture in hostages and captives in Armenia. Such as, UN representative in Baku M. Al-Said was shown the Azerbaijani civilian crop when he visited Kazakh. This man was exposed to torture, brutality in the captivity, his fingers were removed by rope, and his chest was cauterized by a cigarette.

The terroristic actions committed by Armenians

Aggression, military crime, genocide, racism, making illegal experiments upon people, torture, making a slave, brigandage, illegal actions against seafaring, stealing airplanes, terror against them, kidnapping of the diplomats, pledging of civilians, harm to environment, violation of human rights – all of these are the terror actions. As a result of supporting the terrorism in a state level in Armenia and remaining it without punishment, Azerbaijanis   and Turks have been exposed to Armenian terrorism along the history. Thousands of Azerbaijani were expelled from their own lands by the terror actions. Massive terror actions have been made in the Nagorny Karabakh. On the 18th of March 1994, Iranian airplane S-130 (Hercules) coming from Moscow to Tehran was shot on the Khankendy space by Armenian armed forces. As a result of that, 32 people were killed mainly being women and children, as well as 7 contributors of Iranian delegation in Russia. The outcomes of the investigation of the special commission of Iran arranged to investigate this crime proved this crime to be committed by Armenians. Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran declared that the republic of Armenia is responsible for this tragedy. Because the results of the special commission organized by the government of Iran confirmed the shot of the Iran’s aircraft by the Armenian armed forces. Simultaneously, the profit obtained from narcotics after occupation of the NK was directed to control the occupied territory and to fund the mercenaries. The USA State Department noted of that in its report named "About the strategy of international control upon the narcotics'' on March 2000. Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe also noted in its report about that. Taking advantage of the Armenian origin anti-Azerbaijan, anti-governmental citizens, the Azerbaijan committee of "Karabakh'' with leadership of LevonTer-Petrosyan organized the separatist movement, by establishment of the terroristic groups, Azerbaijani inhabitants were departure from Armenia by terror, and massive terroristic acts were committed in NK. Within only the last 10 years, 4 terroristic acts were committed in only transport, where 68 people died and 132 injured. 8 terrorist acts were committed on passenger and freight trains. 14 people were killed and 125 were wounded. 3 terroristic acts were noted in Baku metro, tens of people died as a result of that, hundreds of wounded. "ASALA” terrorists Davidyan, Melkonyan, actively participating in commitment of explosions in "20 January'', "28 May-Ganjlik'', "Ulduz-Narimanov'' stations of Baku Metro, were designated to the desert commander rank by R. Kocharyan in Karabakh. 3 terroristic acts were committed in air transport, 104 people were killed. 25 people were killed and 88 severely wounded during a terrorist act in Krasnovodsk-Baku passenger ferry.  Armenians committed 337 terroristic acts in civilian objects where 881 people died, 1239 people wounded. 8 terroristic acts were committed to civilian and state objects. As a result of those 10 people died, 30 people were wounded.  The economy of Azerbaijan was exposed to the large scale of economic loss. The tragic consequences of Armenian terrorism were reflected in the book of "Armenian crimes (based on documents)'' prepared by Ministry of National Security of the Republic of Azerbaijan based on facts, Armenians terroristic acts committed to Azerbaijan people and constitution, encroachment, armed separatists, and military encroachment acts were demonstrated in detail in the book of "NK: the chronicle of the events (1988-1994)'' of the Ministry of the Internal Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The party of "Dashnaksutun'' currently is acting under the name of "Armenian Revolution Federation”. The Armenian investigator A. Enokyan states that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is used as a benefit for getting their targets in Armenia. The Armenian investigator notes that currently the main aim of the nationalist-socialists of the party of "Dashnaksutun'' in Armenia is to "return back all Armenian lands'' by force, to punish the historical enemies. He considers the R. Kocharyan having the power to be illegal due to his being of Karabakh citizen.

As a result of the researches of Expert Council of the Institute of Human Rights of the Republic of Azerbaijan it was identified that, at the occupied territories of Azerbaijan - "The congress of Kurd'', "Folk freedom front'' located in Lachin, "Hizbullah'' is located in Kirmizi Bazar of Khojavend, "Hamas'' is located in Minjevan settlement of Zangilan. Since 1998 "The Nuclear bureau'' non-official organization was established in Razdan city of Armenia, since 1997 "Yak-makmetalis'', since 1998 "Acopyan'' companies dealing with the nuclear matters were established. In the territory of NK the secret scientific-researching laboratories were set up. Training camps of ASALA terrorist organization were set up at the settlements of Khalfali (Shusha), Kish (Khojavend) Askeran. LevonMikaelyan is head of Al-Qaeda's Vanquard Analytical Group. Armenian terrorism operates in four directions in Nagorno-Karabakh: the nuclear terrorism (Hasanriz, Agdaban, Kurapatkin, and Khanabad), the biological terrorism (Kish, AshagiVeysalli, Istisu), the chemical terrorism (Havuslu, Vejneli), the computer terrorism (Shusha and Khankendi). In the 4th item of the Armenian nuclear program adopted in December 14, 2000 Bahslibel of Kalbajar, Goytala of Shusha, Mixidere, Malxelef, AshagiFaracansetllements were referred as the nuclear zones of Armenia.

The burned lands tactics of Armenia and mine threat make seriously harm to the environment, makes the lands unfit for inhabitance, leads to desertification of the lands. In 1993, foreign news agencies reported the Armenians' "burning ground" tactics, the burning of the Azerbaijani-Iranian border area.

The policy of transfer to the occupied lands of Azerbaijan

Armenian policy of transfer to the occupied lands in the state level

The exposure of the Azerbaijani territory to the occupation, destruction, the policy of ‘Ethnic cleaning” in these lands, repelling of the Azerbaijanis from the permanent settlements gives ground for calling the Armenia as an aggressor state. The actively working on migration policy to move the population to the Kalbajar, Kubadli and Zangilan regions from Armenia in the government level is the other factor proving the encroachment of Armenia against the territory of Azerbaijan, because the settlement of the Armenian citizens in the occupied territories was illegal. In the international practices it is known that the citizens are migrated in to the other government’s territory from the government which the borders will be rearranged. The change in citizenship can be implemented by the optation(the right of moving to another country's citizenship) and in this case voluntary election is applied. The migration of the citizens both in the transfer and optation way can be executed on the basis of the mutual agreement of the involved governments.  Committee on elimination of the racial discrimination mentioned in its decision of 17th August 1995 about the condition at Bosnia and Herzegovina that, any attempt to change the demographic composition in the region means violation of international law. Especially, reporter Al-Xasaun in his report to the commission about the prevention of discrimination and defense of minorities mentioned that the forced migration of the inhabitants is prohibited by the international norms of the law. This idea was recognized by the commission. Geneva Convention is the main legal document prohibiting the relocation of the population of occupying states to the occupied territories to increase the demographic balance. The disturbance of the demographic balance in the occupied territories is condemned by the Security Council in its resolutions too. According to the international law norms Armenia doesn’t have any legal status at the occupied territories. Violating these norms Armenia transfers the Armenian inhabitants to the Azerbaijani territory that is occupied. The transfer of them to the occupied territories has been executed by the prime minister of the republic of Armenia VazgenSarkisyan, his assistant SurenAbramyan and the public administration of refugees. The charity union under the Armenian Monarchy - "Ayrudzi" was created to give the company a public character. This union allocated the large amount of money by taking responsibility of provision of refugees. Arrangement of the transfer project on the minister, his assistant, government administration level proves that the transfer of the Armenian population to the occupied territory of Azerbaijan is organized in the direct control of the Armenian administration and it is a part of the government policy.

Identification of the facts related to the transfer policy of Armenia

On 24th of November 2004, in the meeting of the officials of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan with co-chairs of the Minsk Group, creation of an independent expert group within the OSCE to identify facts related to the settlement policy of Armenia was discussed. OSCE Fact-Finding Mission revelaed the illegal settlement of the Armenian population in the occupied territory of Azerbaijan in 2004. In the 36 pages of report of the Mission, the number of the settled population in the occupied territory was shown to be 15-16 thousands. In the report, the settlement of 8000-12000 people in Lachin, 1500-200 in Kalbajar, 1000 in Agdam, 1000 in Zangilan, 1500 in Kubadli, 100 in Fuzuli and 100 in Jabrayil was stated. An Armenian settled in Karabakh or its surrounding regions is provided with a house in fact and gets 365 USD payments per month. Till 2010, with the intention to increase the number of Armenians up to 300,000 the government of Armenia transfers thousands of Armenians from Iran, Russia, Livan and other countries to the occupied regions by means of giving numerous privileges, gives long term loans and exempts them from the taxes. According to the conclusion of the OSCE's mission of collection of the facts of illegal immigration, the co-chairs called for preventing the further transfer to the occupied territories, noted that the change of demographic situation, maintaining this situation for a long time complicates the peace process and any economic activity in the occupied lands. The CD’s of the videos of Armenian transfers to the occupied territory of Azerbaijan filmed by Abkhazian and Georgian journalists, photos taken from the satellite and the comments for them were sent to the OSCE. This information was also introduced to the fact finding mission of the Minsk group of OSCE in the occupied zones.

Anna Matveyev in the report to the group of work with minorities which was a sub commission of the Committee of Defense of Human Rights in Minorities at Southern Caucasus noted that since 1990 the transfer policy was being applied by the Armenian armed forces to the surrounding of Karabakh. The transferred people got an aid from the government, don’t pay taxes or pay little amount of taxes and by this way the government tries to build physical and public infrastructure. The report of the US Department of State's International Crisis Group on Nagorno-Karabakh in September 2005 states that, Stepanakert (Khankendi – R.D.) sees Lachin as a part of NK. Its demographic structure has been changed. 47400 Azerbaijanis and Kurds lived there till the war (According to the data of 1992, 66646 people lived there during occupation of Lachin. – R.D.). According to the data given from the people of power from NK 10000 Armenian lives there currently. That people are provided with free clothes, social infrastructure, money and pets. They pay very minor taxes. Nearly 85% house houses was restored and redistributed.

According to the "Return to Karabakh'' program realized by state department on affairs of Refugees of the Government of Armenia, the official Yerevan funds the separatist regime of NK. By help of the "Erkir'' nongovernmental organization of G.Egakyan, the head of the State Department of the Affairs of Refugees of Armenia, 35 families were transferred in spring of 2004, 500 thousand dollars were allocated for transfer of 80 families. Again the same year the international funds allocated 400 thousand dollars for building of 90 houses.

Armenia exploiting the natural sources in the occupied territories

Exploiting of the natural resources in occupied lands is another proving fact of Armenia`s his aggression. The large gold deposits of Soyudlu village of Kalbajar and Vejnali village of Zengilan is being illegally explored by the Armenian companies. The Armenian company FerstDynasti Mains LTD in Canada (It is named Sterlight Gold LTD since 2002) got agreement with the Armenian government to explore Soyudlu deposits for 63 billion dollars. Armenian government declared that America and Canada companies agreed for exploration of Vejnali gold deposits with 4.5 tons of gold sources.

Changing the tophonyms in the occupied regions to the Armenian names, armenianization of the cultural and historical monuments

It is necessary to note that, the changing of the toponymys in the occupied regions to the Armenian names, the armenianization of the monuments artificially are the other facts proving the aggression of this government. Armenia changed the name of Kalbajar region to Karvachar, Lachin to Kashatakh, Qubadli to Kashunik, Zangilan to Kavsakan. They try to introduce the important old Albanian religious monuments – Khotabank in Kalbajar (VI-VII centuries) V-XI century monuments in Lachin, the church in Kangarly village of Akhdam as the Armenian monuments.  The old Albanian writings on these monuments, ornaments on the walls and crosses have been replaced with Armenian symbols In these excavations in Akhdam territory more than 15 famous kurgans (Land tombs) related to Khojali culture were destroyed and obtained evidences were taken to Armenia. Restoring the Shahbulaq palace complex in Akhdam region announced establishment of the museum called "Tigranakert'' inside that. They solemnly celebrated the opening of the museum and placed it in internal and external internet networks.
