The Government of Western Armenia recalls that the indigenous people of Shushi forcibly displaced from the city of Shushi in the Artsakh province of Western Armenia have mandated the President of the Republic of Western Armenia, Armenag Aprahamian, to initiate legal proceedings regarding Baku's genocidal policy. Our government has already referred Mr. Armenag Aprahamian's case to the ECHR, and the judicial process has begun. It is this process which formed the basis for the above-mentioned decision of the International Court of Justice. Our government is full of hope that Artsakh and the people of Artsakh, who are already aware of their rights and legal power, will fight with us to complete victory.
