Armenia wants “appropriate” response to Azeri war crimes against women

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan has raised the urgency of an appropriate assessment of war crimes committed by the armed forces of Azerbaijan, in particular, the cases of inhumane treatment of Armenian servicewomen.

Mirzoyan made the remarks on Wednesday, September 21 while meeting with his Swedish counterpart Ann Linde in New York. The Armenian foreign policy chief provided details about Baku’s latest military aggression that began in the wee hours of September 13.

“The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia particularly emphasized the need of eliminating its consequences and the international community's targeted and adequate response to the aggressor country, as well as the necessity of restraining the maximalist and aggressive policy pursued by Azerbaijan,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

The latest round of fighting began in the wee hours of September 13, when the Azerbaijani military attacked Armenian posts and shelled Armenian settlements both on the border and deep behind the frontline. At least 207 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said on Monday.
