Armenia asks World Court to pursue ethnic cleansing case against Azerbaijan

16/4/2024 19:06
        Armenia on Tuesday urged
        the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to hold Azerbaijan
        responsible for what it said was the ethnic cleansing of
        Armenians from the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
        
        "After threatening to do so for years, Azerbaijan has
        completed the ethnic cleansing of the region and is now
        systematically erasing all traces of ethnic Armenians'
        presence," Armenia's representative, Yeghishe Kirakosyan, said
        on the second day of hearings at the U.N.'s top court.
        
        The case is part of the fallout from decades of
        confrontation between the South Caucasus neighbours, most
        explosively over the disputed region in Azerbaijan.
        
        Azerbaijan's armed forces recaptured the mountainous region
        in September after years of ethnic Armenian control, prompting
        most ethnic Armenians to flee to Armenia.
