Pashinyan pledges to use all means to ensure accountability for Azeri war crimes

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia will use all available international mechanisms to ensure investigation of and accountability for the war crimes perpetrated by the Azerbaijani military in mid-September, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on social media Monday, October 3.

In footage published online over the weekend, Azerbaijani troops are seen murdering a number of unarmed Armenian prisoners of war.

“Yet another horrific video circulated in social media: Azerbaijani soldiers are arbitrarily executing a group of Armenian POWs on sovereign Armenian territory. Int'l community should strongly condemn & address this war crime & take appropriate measures to halt Azerbaijan’s aggression,” Pashinyan said.

“Armenia will use all available international mechanisms to ensure investigation and accountability. Such acts of violence should be addressed properly, with consequences for the aggressor.”

The latest round of fighting between the two countries began in the wee hours of September 13, when the Azerbaijani military attacked Armenian posts and shelled Armenian settlements both on the border and deep behind the frontline. More than 200 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said on Monday.
