Members of the Armenian community of Montevideo held a car march with the demand for recognition of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and condemnation of Azerbaijan’s and Turkey’s aggression against Artsakh.
With flags and posters, they passed through over 30 districts and sang the Armenian national anthem. Melanie Demirjian, a member of the community, said the following in her speech: “Azerbaijan and Turkey continue to attack Armenia and Artsakh, as well as civilians, leaving hundreds of servicemen and peaceful civilians dead or injured. I condemn Azerbaijan’s violations of the humanitarian ceasefire. Azerbaijan’s actions attest to the fact that it wants to shell Armenians and seize our territories again. We will stop the subsequent Armenian genocide.”
Demirjian said Uruguay sets an example in terms of human rights protection and called on the authorities to act in a timely manner. “We demand resolute condemnation, renunciation of attacks and international recognition of the Republic of Artsakh,” she added.
