British MFA: We consider what happened in Khojaly as a tragic episode in the history of Azerbaijan
We consider what happened in Khojaly as a tragic episode in the history of Azerbaijan, it was said in a short debate in the House of Lords of the British Parliament about the oral question addressed to the government by Lord Flight about the Khojaly tragedy, APA's Britain bureau reports.
During the debate, the questions were answered by Deputy Foreign Minister Lord Ahmad on behalf of the government.
Lord Flight questioned the position of the British government regarding the Khojaly tragedy and called for additional steps to be taken beyond sending a message of condolence. Lord Ahmad emphasized that they consider what happened in Khojaly in 1992 as a tragic episode in the history of Azerbaijan, and what happened at that time was rightly condemned by the British government. He emphasized that the laying of a wreath at the "The Cry of the Mother" monument erected in memory of the victims of Khojaly by the British ambassador in Baku is a message of condolence from the British government.
