They urge the international community to give a legal and political assessment of the genocide committed by Armenians in Khojaly 28 years ago and to exert pressure on Armenians for them to withdraw from the occupied Azerbaijani lands.
During the rally, the participants distribute brochures reflecting the bitter consequences of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the material and moral damage sustained by Azerbaijan as a result of Armenia's aggressive policy among residents and tourists.
The action may involve over a thousand of our fellow citizens. The participants will adopt a final document at the end of the European-Karabakh rally and submit it to several international organizations.
