Baku must recall demolition of Armenian heritage before claiming on Artsakh-found artefacts

PanARMENIAN.Net - Artsakh Presidnt's spokesman David Babayan suggested Baku to recall demolition of Armenian cultural heritage, specifically destroyed khachkars in New Jugha, before laying claims to organising archaeological excavations in Artsakh.

Earlier, the Director of Archaeology and Ethnography institute of ANSA Maisa Rahimova stated that artefacts recently discovered in Artsakh's Kashatagh region belong to Azerbaijan.

Commenting on the statement above in a conversation with a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, Babayan noted that the whole Azerbaijani policy is founded on lies and falsifications.

“A pseudo-science, driving local “historians” to attempt proving Sumerian origin of the Azerbaijani, is gaining impetus. Azeris are trying to prove Armenian cultural benchmarks and cities belong to them, yet the first historic mention of Azerbaijanis was reported only in the 20th century. ”

“Moreover, archaeological excavations in Artsakh once again prove it to be an originally Armenian territory,” the spokesman stressed.

In January 2011, a burial place of two women, along with their golden and bronze decorations estimated at approx. USD 21,5 million, was discovered in Artsakh's Kashatagh region.
