Azerbaijan Ombudsman Calls for UPF to Help in Dispute with Armenia

Here’s an odd one (emphasis added):

Ombudsman Elmira Suleymanova said that day was one of the saddest days in the history of Azerbaijan. Elmira Suleymanova said she had prepared a statement concerning the genocide and informed the world community of the document. The statement has been sent to UN Secretary General, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, OSCE, Council of Europe, International and European Ombudsman Institutes, Asian Ombudsman Association, International Peace Bureau, Universal Peace Federation, Azerbaijan’s embassies in foreign countries, foreign embassies in our country and Azerbaijani Diaspora organizations. The document says that the slaughter in March 1918 is one of the most terrible examples of the genocide policy pursued by Armenians against Azerbaijanis.

Suleymanova’s complaint concerns the current on-going dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and she raised the issue at the the recent UPF world peace summit. Back in January, it was announced that Alex Shapiro-Suliman, president of the Congress of Azerbaijanis on the Middle East, had been made on the UPF’s Ambassadors for Peace.
