Roman Teryan and Artur Apresyan, who fled Armenia and arrived in
Azerbaijan as a sign of protest against [Armenian President] Robert
Kocharyan’s regime and are currently being held at the remand centre
of the Azerbaijani Ministry of National Security, have officially
appealed to Arzu Abdullayeva, chairwoman of the Azerbaijani National
Committee of the Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly, to help them move to a
third country.

Abdullayeva told ANS that she had received the appeal. She asked the
National Security Ministry to answer numerous questions and receive
those Armenians. On Monday [10 May], she will ask the UN office in
Baku and other international organizations for help.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
