Los Angeles Mayor condemns violence  against Azerbaijani community members

The Mayor of the City of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, sent a letter to Azerbaijan’s Consul General in Los Angeles Nasimi Aghayev condemning the violence against the Azerbaijani community members in Los Angeles.

In his letter, Mayor Garcetti stated: “I was saddened to hear of the events that took place outside of the Consulate of Azerbaijan on Tuesday, July 21. While I am unable to comment on an active LAPD investigation, I strongly condemn the actions of those who resorted to violence.
Freedom of assembly and speech is the bedrock of American values, and Los Angeles is proud of our long tradition of peaceful protest and activism.

Violence has no place in that tradition and is not tolerated in our City. The City will continue to work to ensure the safety of your community.”
