Argentine-Armenian Youth Challenge Azeri Provocations
BUENOS AIRES (Prensa Armenia)—On Monday afternoon, a group of young Argentine-Armenians arrived at the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Argentina to deliver a letter to Azerbaijani diplomats, who were conducting a seminar entitled “The resolution of the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan and its implications for the region.”
“We write to inform our strongest condemnation of the conference that is currently taking place at the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Argentina,” the letter read. “Since its establishment in the City of Buenos Aires, the Embassy has repeatedly conducted meetings that aim to distort the history of the Caucasus, repeating the racist and anti-Armenian speech that the government of Ilham Aliyev maintains in actions and statements,” said the letter. Azeri diplomats refused to receive the letter.
The seminar was held two days before the rally that will be held outside the embassy of Azerbaijan to remember the 26th anniversary of the Sumgait pogroms. “This seminar is a provocation. It gives us more strength to continue our fight”, said one of the protesters. The rally organized by the Armenian Youth Federation will be held on Wednesday, February 26, in Buenos Aires. The next day, there will be an “urban intervention” in Montevideo.
