GENEVA

Tens of people in Switzerland took to the streets on Sunday to protest against Armenia’s cross-border attacks on Azerbaijan and its continued occupation of the Upper Karabakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) region.

Organized by Switzerland-based Azerbaijan Diaspora Organizations Council, the protest was also attended by Turkish organizations in the country.

Carrying Turkish and Azerbaijani flags, the crowd gathered in front of the United Nations Office in Geneva.

The protesters held placards reading “Justice for Azerbaijan” and “Stop Armenian occupation”.

Protest held against Armenian attacks 1

Armenian military attacks since last Sunday have martyred a dozen Azerbaijani soldiers. However, they have since withdrawn after suffering losses following retaliation from the Azerbaijani military.

Azerbaijan has blamed Armenia for the “provocative” actions, with Turkey supporting Baku and warning Yerevan that it will not hesitate to stand against any attack on its eastern neighbor.

Since 1991 the Armenian military has illegally occupied the Upper Karabakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) region, an internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan.

Four UN Security Council and two UN General Assembly resolutions, as well as decisions by many international organizations, refer to the illegal occupation and demand the withdrawal of Armenian forces from Upper Karabakh and seven other occupied regions of Azerbaijan.
