Canada calls for accountability as more Azerbaijani war crimes emerge

Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly said on Monday, October 3 that reports of Azerbaijani soldiers executing Armenian prisoners of war are deeply disturbing.

“Perpetrators of such violence must be held to account and the region must return to a place of stability,” Joly said on social media.

In footage published online over the weekend, Azerbaijani troops are seen murdering several unarmed Armenian prisoners of war.

The latest round of fighting between the two countries 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. More than 200 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said on Monday.
