/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Any destruction of cultural monuments is
vandalism. The Armenian cemetery in Old Julfa is the legacy of the
humankind and actions of the Azeri authorities cannot be justified,
professor Mikhail Meyer, the Director of the Institute of Asian
and African Studies of Moscow State University stated in Yerevan at
a meeting in the South Caucasian branch of the Caucasus Democracy
Institute development foundation. He stated it when commenting at
the instance of a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter on the fact of Azerbaijan
trying to destroy traces of Armenians’ residence in the territory of
current Azerbaijan. In his words, history cannot be revised. “I am
not very well familiar with the details, however I am sure there is
historical evidence, manuscripts, confirming the fact that Armenians
have always lived in Nakhichevan,” Mikhail Meyer said.
