Seminar entitled “Nagorno-Karabakh conflict” in Denmark

Posted on: February 26, 2011

A seminar entitled “Nagorno-Karabakh conflict” was held at the University of Southern Denmark on 24 February 2011.

The purpose of the seminar was to inform participants from Denmark and other countries about the background of the conflict, reasons it happened and its influence to the people living on that region. As the result of the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan 30.000 people were killed (5.000 Armenian and 25.000 Azerbaijani), nearly one million internally-displaced peoples (IDPs) and refugees posses Azerbaijan and 300.000 posses Armenia, occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions of Azerbaijan by Armenia. It was also stressed the most tragically event of the war – “Khojaly Massacre”, which took the lives of 613 civilians in 1992. Even though UN passed 4 resolutions demanding “unconditional withdrawal of occupation forces from all the occupied regions of the Azerbaijan Republic” the Republic of Armenia refused to comply with these demands.

There was online conference with Azerbaijani political analyst, co-founder of the Republicanist Alternative” (Re: AL!) movement Ilgar Mammadov. He suggested to focus on the future of the conflict and how it could be solved rather than concentrating on the historical origin of the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The seminar proceeded with active discussion of parties and the exhibition of “Justice for Khojaly” campaign. At the end traditional Azerbaijani sweets were served to the guests.
