JANUARY 19, 2012
YEREVAN, JANUARY 19, ARMENPRESS: A march commemorating the Armenians
killed in Baku and Sumgait massacres and marking Dink’s murder day
was organzied Thursday in Tsitsernakaberd.
The event was organized by Yerevan State University’s “Association
of Young University Colleagues” NGO. Head of the organization Gevorg
Melkonyan briefed journalists that the massacre of the Armenians
in Baku was the continuation of the Sumgait pogrom committed by the
Azerbaijani still in 1988, Armenpress reports.
“If international community had given political assessments to Sumgait,
Baku and Maragha pogroms in time, I am sure, Hrant Dink’s murder
would not happen in Turkey,” said Gevorg Melkonyan. He reminded that
all those people have been killed for the mere reason that they were
Armenians. “International community should give relevant political
assessments to all these events,” he said.
