Displaced Karabakh residents demand action from OSCE Minsk Group

PanARMENIAN.Net - A group of people displaced during the Second Karabakh War staged a protest in front of the U.S. Embassy in Armenia on Monday, August 8, demanding the U.S. government to arrange their return to their homeland, Sputnik Armenia reports.

"We have a single demand: to return to our homeland. In addition, countries should make a demand to the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, not only to let us return to our homes, but also to restore whatever has been damaged. We see on the Internet how Azerbaijanis are destroying our houses. The authorities of Armenia and Artsakh have no past, so we have no demands from this government," said a woman participating in the demonstration.

"We are in front of the American Embassy as a co-chair country of the OSCE Minsk Group," said another protester.

"We demand that the Minsk Group countries fulfill their responsibilities, because now the situation in Artsakh is tense, those who earlier handed over Shushi and Hadrut now want to surrender Aghavno."

The demonstrators transferred a letter to the security officer to deliver it to the U.S. ambassador to Armenia, Lynn M. Tracy.

Today they will raise the same issue in front of the UN office in the country.
