Sudan calls Armenian massacre of Azeris 'genocide'

World Bulletin / News Desk

Sudan has officially recognized the Armenian massacre of ethnic Azeri's in 1992 as a 'crime against humanity' and a 'genocide.'

The decision came after the Sudanese parliament's foreign relations committee was petitioned by Azerbaijan's Foreign Minister Hikmet Haciyev.

The committee based its decision on the Khojaly massacre of February 25, 1992 in the Armenian occupied territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, in which 613 unarmed Azeri civilians - including 106 women and 83 children - were killed by Armenian soldiers during a war between the two countries.
